YALI: Beyond Borders

A great leader once said: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

This quote is etched on my mind and keeps on enflaming my heart! Indeed, Madiba was one the greatest and inspiring leader that this world has known and is legacy lingers. I can still feel his spirit, he is in me, he is with you, he is ever present in our daily struggles for a better world of tolerance and acceptance, pulling down walls and breaking barriers. 

"When YALI is empowering me as an individual, it is also empowering a nation of young queers across the continent."
