World Speech Day is a day dedicated to celebrating speeches and speech making, through a multitude of live speaking events across the globe.
On the 22nd of March The Ismaili Jamatkhana and Centre in Kinshasa opened its doors to primary and secondary school students to share their ideas and vision for the world. This was the second such event held in the centre, building on the success of the same event in 2016. The future leaders of tomorrow spoke on a wide range of topics that included policies to stimulate economic growth, creating equal opportunity for women, steps to reduce our carbon footprint, targeting corruption amongst others. This year, there were over sixteen participants and the event was very well received.
