Over 20 Nazarene Youth International district presidents from Africa East are gathering in the city of Jinja, Uganda, for a four-day retreat.
The retreat, which is set to run from August 10-13, was designed to provide participants with opportunities to collaborate and enhance their leadership skills.
Specifically, participants came from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Djibouti.
Seezi Bogere, the Communications Coordinator for NYI Africa East, said the main objective of the retreat included facilitating networking and relationship building among district presidents, as well as equipping district presidents with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to effectively lead their respective regions.
