What is "Make a Noise"
Make a Noise is Choma’s new movement that focuses on amplifying the voice of the youth. It’s an opportunity to give young people in South Africa the chance to speak up about the changes they want to see in society and in the world.
If you’re a young person living in South Africa, you deserve to have your voice heard because your opinion matters. So if you’re tired of seeing and thinking about everyday injustices and not being able to express it or even have a platform that can support it, this is where you can.
Make a Noise is about you, taking a stand by making your voice heard. There’s so much going on the world so Choma created a platform where you can talk about these things, from social injustices to a cause or a movement that you’re passionate about. Tired of gender inequality? Make a Noise about it. Tired of cyber bullying? Make a Noise about. Want to see more being done at your schools, universities or even in your community? Make a Noise about it.
The point of Make a Noise is to open up discussions about the serious problems we see and face every day. And who knows Choma, maybe the more we make a noise, the more things will change.
