DAY 5: Speak for Change

It’s our first and only Sunday at CITY camp and our leaders and volunteers started off our day with God in intense worship and praise. If you asked a teenager what they learnt from the sermon, they would say “I have worth, I’m not junk, I am carefully and wonderfully made, I was created for a purpose by the most creative creator”.

Ahhhhh! Sundays always come with a special meal and no one says no to a delicious plate of Fried rice and well spiced chicken. But the food won’t cook itself so we had some volunteers assist in the preparation. You can tell they are excited to serve.

Class Session

Welcome to LEAD 102; our second class on leadership. Leadership is a core of the curriculum here at CITY camp. Today’s leadership class was titled ‘Leading Self’. We always call our teenagers; leaders and they had a fun, innovative and knowledge-packed session.

Speak For Change

All through the weekend, a lot of excitement had been in the air, as we anticipated the event of this evening, Speak for Change. Speak for Change is a platform where leaders get to select a topic from one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and speak about it for an allotted period. Each team made captivating presentations on these challenges and we had our judges select the top three presentations.
