The ALN is pleased to announce that six members of the Network have qualified to participate in the Youth Political Academy taking place in London from 24-29 March 2016. The Academy is hosted by our partners and friends at the Liberal Democrats.
The ALN members will have the opportunity to take part in actual campaigns, learning and sharing ideas and expertise with fellow young liberals from across the world. The Academy starts with training sessions on constituency campaigning, volunteer mobilisation and diversity outreach. Our participants will then take part in actual referendum campaigns, implementing skills that can win elections!
The Academy also offers the chance for our young liberals to work together on further forming the ALN’s Advisory Youth Council (AYC). The AYC will be the voice of young, dynamic African liberals.
The six participants at the Youth Political Academy are:
- Berlinda Bulley (Ghana)
- Nomzamo Kheswa (South Africa)
- Richard Nii Amarh (Ghana)
- Gaolape Rodrick Mogotsi (Botswana)
- Stenah Shampile (Zambia)
- Jawad Chafil (Morocco)
Our participants will be led and mentored by the ALN’s East Africa Vice President, Rosemary Machua.
