My Travel Story

Gen Fest is a meeting of thousands of youth from all over the world, from different ethnicities, cultures and religions, driven by the idea that the construction of a united and more sympathetic world is already an experience of life and social action. The Genfest is an occasion for exchange of and approach towards ideas on economy, art, environment, social realities and intercultural dialogue. It is an invitation to build bridges of fraternity and contribute to breaking barriers of indifference, prejudice, egoism.

The event will be held in Manila 6-8 july 2018, and the post gen fest event will be held on 9-14 july 2018. The title BEYOND ALL BORDERS intends to highlight the boundaries that need to be overcome at personal and social levels. It was chosen with the purpose of opening the minds and hearts of the participants.

GenFest, a major event of Focolare’s “Youth for a United World” (Y4UW) movement, brings together young people between the ages of 17 and 30 of different ethnicities, nationalities and cultures. They belong to various Christian denominations, different religions, or do not profess a religious belief, but all are united by the desire to build a more united world.

Therefore, i'm asking friends, family or anyone who concern about this to help me sponsor my trip to manila. i would really appreciate any donations to help fund this palcement. Lets make a difference, and spread the peace to the world (especially where we live in).  thank you :)
