African Youth News: 22 December 2016
Greetings YMCA family and friends,
As we close the 2016 chapter of the AAYMCA and close our doors at the office today, we reflect on what our mission really means for us at this time of year, Christmas. The African YMCA movement strives to transform the lived reality of our youth so they may believe in themselves and our collective future. And so that they may act on this belief and lead us into a future where we place value on ourselves, each other, our opinions, our bodies, our lands, our rights and our responsibilities. Christmas is a blessed time for many… and just another lonely, hopeless day for many others. Our hope at this time of year is that we are able to impact our youth so the hopeless find belief, and the lonely find belonging. And that together, we build a better future.
God bless you all and keep you safe.
