Young Kenyans attend EU-Africa Youth Summit in Brussels 03/07/2012
Seven Kenyans were selected from among over 2,000 candidates to join the British Council's Global Changemakers network of young social entrepreneurs & community activists from 126 countries. They attended the EU-Africa Youth Summit in Brussels, to present the projects they conducted during the past year. The summit was organized in June 2012 by the British Council and the EU’s European Economic and Social Committee, focusing on social entrepreneurship and employment.
The Global Changemakers programme’s mission is to empower youth to catalyse positive social change. There are currently 800 Changemakers, more then 200,000 young people involved in Global Changemakers activities each year, and 3.5 million beneficiaries of GCM project work.
The group was invited to the reception hosted by H.E. Amb. Kembi-Gitura in honour of Kenya’s Parliamentary Service Commission, which was in Brussels at the same time on a study tour of the Belgian parliaments.
