African Youth News: 24 February 2017
Greetings YMCA family and friends
We share so many different stories. Some based on life’s experiences, some on dreams and visions for the Africa we want. While others, reflect on the relevancy of self-awareness in a diverse continent. Expressed proudly by our youth. As our young people continue to develop the courage and boldness to be seen, heard and felt, we celebrate as we see the transformation unfold. As direction and knowledge strengthens in our vision to empower the youth, the YMCAs participation in the Africa Health Agenda International Conference Youth Pre-Conference from 5 to 6 March 2017, reflects a system of greater international and national collaboration. Unity gaining momentum to drive the agenda of youth empowerment.
Together, we are marching. Siyahamba!
