In the 2011 Global Justice Volunteers Africa Program, young adults are volunteering with three organizations in Kenya seeking justice around issues related to HIV/AIDS. Below is a reflection from Phenie Achieng Okidi (Kenya) following the orientation and training:
During my training, I learned that justice is God's nature, so any injustice done is first done to God, because justice is the core of God's heart. I learned three main things that the Lord requires of us throughout mission: to do justice, show mercy and loving-kindness, and walk in humility with the Lord.

I hope that, through my training, I shall never be the same again but will create a difference in my society because of the knowledge which has been impacted on me and the experience I will have during my volunteer term.
