The opening ceremony, on Friday, May 25, 2018, of our Kiwanis European Federation Convention will be boosted up by the presence of young Syrian Mohamad Al Jounde, International Children Peace Prize.
Aged only 16, Mohamad Al Jounde was rewarded for his remarkable work with children deprived with school attendance and wandering in a refugee camp in Lebanon. Being a refugee himself, he distinguished himself, aged only 12 years old, by creating classes and giving courses himself.
Come listen to his story at the opening session!
Earlier in the day, from 15:00 to 16:00, there will be a workshop dedicated to the HAPPY CHILD project where you can discover the latest developments and ask questions. Mohamad Al Jounde will also be present at the workshop and you will also be able to meet him, give him messages of encouragement or ask him questions. For a good organization and preparation, given his young age, please send your questions before May 10th, to Josy Glatigny, Happy Child Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org
