NOUS AIMONS LES JEUNES!
We love our youth! So last month, our affiliate humanitarian organization, Change Rocks Foundation, had a special opportunity to lead the first annual Gospel Youth Summit in Lille, France. During founder Yewande Austin's visit, she produced leadership workshops for youth from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and an organizational leadership workshop for Congolese students leaders from Lille University. Austin concluded the trip with 2 live concerts for local music lovers. Au revoir!
