Dear Barrack,

Thank you so much for the kind words. The Youth IGF continues to thrive
because of the back up and support of KICTANET and many others in this
list.

We remain grateful for all the support and mentorship accorded to us.

Looking forward to another fruitful engagement in the IGF this year.

Peace and Light
Keith!
