After uniting the three zones of Eastern and Southern Africa and Madagascar in 2019, into one mega-zone, we the young people, felt it was an excellent opportunity to expand our horizon. Unfortunately, after only a few months, the pandemic struck and abruptly limited us from having activities together. We were forced into isolation and couldn’t meet. However, this didn’t stop us to seek every possible way to connect! Overnight many Zoom meetings, WhatsApp messages, FaceBook pages were created and used to keep our spirit of being Gen alive. After one year of living like this, at the end of the on-line United World Week in 2021, we were compelled to organize a zonal Gen 2 Congress where we could meet in person! No more hiding behind the screen of our mobiles or laptops! No more virtual meetings, but a congress where we could finally hug and touch each other and revive the spirit of our Gen-life together to bring the fire we hide behind our masks to the world!
