Updated: Nov 15, 2019
The fourth annual training conference for the 'Let God Be You' organisation was held in Dar E Salam, Tanzania. The invitation and conference language was Swahili, and the theme was 'Yes, We Can'.
This training is an extension of the Afrinspire Young Leader's Conference, which takes place annually in Uganda. Two of the peers in the Afrinspire's Young Leaders network, Issac Omoding and Robert Ssebuliba, made the 30 hour bus journey to Dar E Salam from Kampala to lead the conference. Isaac is a regular visitor to LGBY and to the youth there he is the face of Afrinspire.
The conference took place over 3 days, after which Robert and Isaac went to review the watermelon and soap projects started in previous years.
Updates on this news story will be provided as reports come through. For now, we wish Isaac and Robert well in their long journey back home over this weekend.
