Yes, it’s that time again. The young people on the ORIGIN rites of passage programme are preparing for their Graduation. The Graduation marks the completion of this part of the journey. It will have taken over a year to complete. Generations of ORIGIN Graduates, members of the village and their guests will re-connect as the ORIGIN’ites leave behind childhood and embrace young adult life – in a ceremony fit for a King.
The image above is from our last Graduation. Adisa hands the Mike to Lil Chris, who speaks from the heart.
African proverb: If the young men are not initiated into the Village, they will burn it down – just ot feel it’s warmth.
