    1. Interesting agenda. It captures so much topics we should know as changemakers in our communities. I am just now looking forward to interacting with all the amazing Kectil colleagues, the mentors about these different topics.
      I think we will not be the same in terms of knowledges, critical thinking by the end of this program.
