Alex Heywood

Founder & Director Kid Powered Media (India)
Alex Heywood is from Toronto Canada but has called India home for the last four years.
He originally came to eat, but subsequently returned and founded Kid Powered Media, a not-for-profit which focuses on making sure teenagers from disadvantaged communities really learn about and are able to navigate the health and social issues they face growing up.
Harnessing the power of Bollywood and the insight that issues faced by kids need answers made by kids, he together with an amazing team are building out an educational platform which puts the kids themselves in charge of creating their own answers and solutions.
Kid Powered Media has seen that the insights gained through this process allows individuals, teachers, non-profits and companies to find the right voice to more effectively and compellingly engage communities across India.
