From August 27th through August 31st, This year, over a dozen young Congolese took part in the inaugural edition of the Leadership Retreat organized by the Kimpa Vita Institute.
The retreat is opened to young Congolese between the ages of 16 and 30 years old.
We were blessed to have as instructors such as Patrick Mbeko, Paul Sasa Gatanga, Dr Eyamba Bokamba, Mrs Priscillia Kounkou Beah and Ishmael Beah and Paul Kwengere. Learning from the experience of instructors and their engaging workshops, the 2013 participants were able to learn, during this 4-day intensive training program, about leadership, organization, mobilization and history of the Congo. These young leaders acquired new tools that would help them in their engagement in becoming the new generation of Congolese leaders.
With a very successful first edition at the World Fellowship Center in New Hampshire, we can only hope a great future for each participant of the 2014 retreat.
