Many teens want to lead, but have never been given the permission or the opportunity to do so.”

NAIROBI COUNTY, WESTLANDS SUB COUNTY, KENYA, September 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- From the 17th of July to the 7th of August 2022, BlessedGirl Global embarked on an international youth civility tour led by Dr. Anana Phifer-Derilhomme a World Civility Ambassador, International Chaplain and the founder of BlessedGirl Global. This African expedition covered host countries which included Burundi, Ghana, Kenya, and South Africa, and successfully provided outreach to over 2,000 youth throughout these 4 countries.


Beginning in Nairobi, Kenya, the delegates Nasset Derilhomme, Ayanna Slacum, Margie Hernandez, Gwen Cunningham, Karina Brown, and Rahjon White of the BlessedGirls Youth Civility Tour spoke to over 700 students at the Sekanani Girls School and distributed hygiene packs in collaborations with Dr. Soyum Shah and The Lions Club. The delegates learned of the conservation and sustainable projects at the Nashulai Conservancy, and Mr. White and Mr. Derilhomme spoke with the vocational students on civility leadership and community service.


Authors of The 4 C’s Youth Civility book visited groups of children ranging from primary school to university students, speaking about their “C” as it pertains to the youth in each country, as well as provided encouragement for the future. “We are here to help equip your youth with civility and the art of managing conflict,” said Tamika Thomas as she spoke in Accra, Ghana.


Pioneered by BlessedGirl’s founder Anana Phifer-Derilhomme was a Pads & Panties Initiative, with one of the goals of the organization being to bring an end to period poverty. Due to financial and cultural constraints in many developing African nations, many young women have limited access to sanitary products. With the help of tour partners A.H.E.A.R.T, Blessed Girls was able to help furnish essential items for young women in each nation visited.


The delegates also visited schools, orphanages, hospitals and churches and provided aid, inspiration and education. “If leaders can focus on civility we can transform communities,” said Thomas Dwagat. “We view what some the students have as less but they have so much more in spirit,” said Nasset Derilhomme.


“Each of the 4C’s presents an opportunity for everyone to consider how they can be an agent of change. The 4C’s established structured dialogue among the dynamic emerging leaders. We explored various topics and trends that influence us nationally and globally. I believe it takes ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Many teens want to lead, but have never been given the permission or the opportunity to do so.” said Dr. Anana.


A dynamic aspect of The 4C’s is the power of choice. Students were inspired to consider civility, community, creativity and climate change to focus and expand their knowledge. The goal of the platform is to get youth to be open to civility, kindness, respect and unity. Around the globe we see and hear the cry of our youth, and through this experience we can see clearly that Africa’s future is bright!
