This week, CRF Global Youth Ambassador Brighton Kaoma met with President Barack Obama at the Obama Foundation to discuss the role of young African leaders in bringing about sustainable solutions to the challenges their communities face.

Being the only young African to meet President Obama from a pool of 1,000 Mandela Washington Fellows of 2017 was a life changing experience for Brighton. He says, “During my half an hour meeting with President Barack Obama, we discussed issues around the global threat of climate change and why it’s relevant for each and everyone to rise to the occasion and act to mitigate and adapt to this challenge of our generation.”

We congratulate you Brighton, and are so proud of all that you have been doing and stand for!
