Between Youth Influence and Influencing the Youth
The World Student Christian Federation - Middle East Region held “Ayia Napa 35” in Cairo, Egypt, between October 2nd to 7th, 2021. “Ayia Napa” is another name for the region’s annual leadership program, which aims to train youth to become future leaders who will positively reshape their communities in the Middle East and will commit to witnessing their faith in Church and society. The thirty-fifth iteration of “Ayia Napa” was titled “Between Youth Influence and Influencing the Youth,” tackling the mutual influence that youth and the world around them have on each other. In attendance were forty youth from SCMs in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Sudan, and Syria.
