Kid President. These charming kids all spoke to me about their hopes for the future. One showed me his beautiful paintings, another presented me with handmade jewellery. I heard stories of how they had learnt much more than lessons at school, how to work as a team, how to treat their peers and good principles to live by. An alumni of the school returned and told of how he had left the leadership of a militia group to pursue his studies and in doing so had found a way to mentor other young men to avoid forced conscription. One showed me his new laptop – he had decided he needed one, so set up a small business, saved his money and bought one. This same kid told me how he planned to be president one day. #president #congo #youth #future #hope
