#IAmWithYou campaign believes that the best remedy to overcome the grieving issue of suicides and depression is to express one's support and friendship to each other and share their concerns. The highlight of this campaign and the Master Plan initiative is the student and youth leaders from around the world irrespective of their ideology, and other rationals, came together to support this campaign. They believe that the UN is the best platform to undertake this issue and then take it to countries. This campaign will also focus on how to tackle the youth obsession on social media which they found as one of the worst causes. However, the campaign also uses the social media platform, but to market, advertises, and requesting the youth to be more social than in social media.
Triton Solar has expressed interest to sponsor the official campaign launch of the #IAmWithYou campaign planned for the end of January at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Master Plan was designed by Collegiate Congress Inc. leading student advocacy organization in New York. Chair of Collegiate Congress Inc. and of the Master Plan Core Committee Mr.Christo Thomas mentioned that he and his team have met with the World Health Organization delegation in Ne York to support this campaign and is expecting a positive response from them. Early January his team will be meeting with UNICEF for the same.
