African Youth News: 29 April
Our African YMCA representatives in the Young Peace Performers group are about to head off to Norway. The four youth, from Kenya and Madagascar, began their experience some months ago in Tanzania where, as a group, they used creative arts to advocate for change on issues of global and local concern. Community workshops, seminars, and media are all part of the package. Two months ago, they returned to their home countries, and local and national YMCAs, to share their learnings and integrate these into the YMCA initiatives. Now in Norway, they will be exposed to different community action and advocacy approaches. This is a truly life-changing leadership experience for the participants and adds much richness to their engagement within their YMCAs. We know they will represent us well and fly the Africa YMCA flag high!
Siyahamba, we are marching!
