Lead Up International is an organisation that runs programs with a mission to 'bridge divides and break cycles of violence and poverty' in Guatemala, the USA, Brazil, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Austria, Uruguay and Germany. Poppy Woods met co-founder and Guatemala project leader Katie Cunningham Pokorny and four inspiring young people who have been a part of the program at the Ebony Horse Club to discuss the universality of cycles of violence and poverty and how Lead Up's unique approach to creative empowerment can have a huge impact on helping underprivileged young people to feel empowered to break out of these cycles and fulfil their potential.
