The recently concluded International Youth Fellowship (IYF) Dream Camp 2024 marked a milestone in nurturing the potential of Namibian youth, equipping them with skills and experiences crucial for their journey as future leaders.

With approximately 80 participants, the event served as a platform for personal growth, cultural exchange and community building.

At the heart of the event were the mind education lectures delivered by IYF-Namibia mind specialist and country representative Sangbin Kim.

At the start of the camp, Kim stressed that many young people aspire to achieve great things in life, yet often they attribute their limitations to their circumstances, leading them to abandon their dreams.

Kim further highlighted the importance of mindset in pursuing one’s dreams.

“This perspective underscores that it is not external conditions that dictate our aspirations but rather our attitude and mindset towards our goals,” said Kim.

Throughout the camp, Kim’s sessions were crafted to provide insights into the qualities that contribute to cultivating a resilient mindset.

Over the course of three days, the camp showcased diverse activities tailored to foster personal development and cultural appreciation.

From the Korea culture exhibition booths to academy classes, the youth found avenues for exploration and self-discovery.

“The IYF Dream Camp has been nothing short of transformative,” said Shinedima Indileni (26) from Triumphant College.

Before arriving, she said she was trapped in the confines of her comfort zone, guided by the well-meaning but stifling influence of her siblings.

Katjiwe Tueukamba (23) from the Namibia University of Science and Technology said attending the Dream Camp was truly transformative.

“The supportive atmosphere encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone both emotionally and physically. The well organised activities and sense of community among participants made the experience unforgettable,” said Tueukamba.
