In 2006, as a student, I had my first Pamoja Africa experience. I was in my final year of my computer science university degree and it was a very tough year academically. God provided the funds for me to travel to Kenya for Pamoja. It was my first international trip!
What I experienced as a student in Kenya set me up for what I would do as a staff member in mobilizing digital missionaries at Pamoja events in 2010 in Cote D'ivoire and in 2012 in Nigeria. And today, I am flying to Lusaka, Zambia to be with 2000 leaders and young digital practitioners from all over Africa for the next Pamoja!
The word Pamoja is derived from the Swahili word meaning “togetherness”. Pamoja Africa is a vision and a movement. A vision to raise a new generation of transformational leaders for a new Africa and beyond. A movement that will build a network of Africans who are continuously engaged in connecting with each other through business, political, social and religious platforms to make a difference for the Lord.
I attended the previous three conferences helping in organizing the conference and focussing on the media and digital presence.
Would you please pray for travel mercy for me and for all participants to Lusaka, Zambia? Pray also that I will be an encouragement to the young digital practitioners I am going to interact with.
Serving with you,
Miheret T. Eshete
