A message from the co-organisers Madina Salavdiyeva, Venandah Madanhi, Ines Felizardo:
We are three young lawyers, change-makers and Fellows of the RSA. We have put together this project in the hope of bringing change to our communities. We believe that no act of kindness is too small, and therefore we can make a big impact together through many small acts. This project is designed to accommodate the Fellowship's wide-ranging interests and areas of expertise, with a common goal of having an impact on those around us. We look forward to having you join us on this journey, it is fuelled by the passion of Fellows like yourself.

If you would like to join 100 Fellows on the journey to act for hope then sign up here before 6 July 2022.
