Where is time going to and who is it competing with? Just the other day we were in January and in the blink of an eye we are in June; halfway through the year.
Maybe at YPARD we don't notice this because we are in a celebration mood - celebrating 10 years of our existance. Halfway through the year, celebratory content from YPARD members across the globe is still streaming in.
In May, we take you through the sumptous photos of the YPARD 10 Years cakes courtesy of YPARD Phillipnes. The team met during a planning meeting and decided it was apt to celebrate the YPARD 10 years strides. Have a look at Jim Cano's post event blogpost as well as the planning meeting photos on Flickr
May 2016 Celebratory Series
This month, two YPARD Face-to-Face mentees graced the YPARD 2016 Celebratory series. Alan Migwi and Duncan Cheruiyot tells us how they both got involved with YPARD, how the mentoring program has shaped up to become a strong YPARD component and how it has benefited them personally.
