Rukoh Bai-kamara, a young child activist, recently attended the 6th African Youth Connekt Summit held in Nairobi. Rukoh Bai-kamara attendance at the summit was organized by the Ministry of Youth Affairs, UNICEF, and UNDP. In her Facebook post, Rukoh expressed her gratitude to these organizations for playing their significant roles in making her attendance possible.
The summit brought together different youths from different fields with one goal for positive change. Rukoh’s passion for environmental awareness and climate change issues led her to focus on this sector with the help of UNICEF and the youth-led action group. She aims to bring people to the knowledge of its existence, function, effects, and prevention patterns.
Rukoh’s message is clear: believing in young people is no wrong placement of faith. She has been believed in from afar and will continue to task herself to affect other young people with her newly begun experience and knowledge gathered.
The 6th African Youth Connekt Summit was a platform that assured Rukoh of progress in pushing forward the message. The summit is a testament to the fact that passion goes far and how great it is to be passionate.
