Connect is a development programme facilitating mutual exchange of youths between four organisations: NMS (Det Norske Misjonsselskap), Movimento Encontrão, FLM (Fiangonana Loterana Malagasy) and The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hong Kong.

Connect’s main goal is to raise young leaders who will make a positive impact on their societies, working towards a world without injustice and poverty. In order to reach this goal, the partners will train youth leaders, increase youth participation in the organisations, and spread awareness of global challenges in a globalized world.

During the exchange, the participants will increase their competencies in intercultural communication, human understanding and tolerance, and in turn achieve a greater understanding of development work.
