The Migrant Leaders Youth Conference on Sunday 8th October 2017 introduced the proposed programme to young people to invite feedback. This was designed and facilitated by Elham Fardad who divided the attendees into discussion groups who then each presented on the stage their feedback and thoughts to Elham and others. Elham said “…This is a pivotal conference as the Migrant Leaders Development Programme is for all of you young people and those across the country who will have access to all our online resources.

Elham’s message to the young people was “…Fear nothing and no-one, least of all yourself…for the brave man dies once in his life but the fearful man dies a thousand deaths a day…”
