|Young people often make up a high percentage of the Church in East
Africa, but tend to be under-valued. Therefore they feel rejected and struggle to develop
their potential. In YEA we seek to empower youth by giving them mission opportunities. We
support this by educating Church leaders to understand and appreciate their young people.
We run mission teams of East African youth to different parts of the region and actively
seek partnership with local churches who wish to copy this model.
These mission teams
have a dynamic impact on the youth & the communities they visit. They effectively
offer discipleship & training. Everyone can see what ordinary young people can
achieve, given the opportunity.
In training workshops we encourage youth and children's workers to develop a strategy to
reach un-churched young people and offer skills training in how best to understand and
communicate with them.
