Keanan August will be heading to Panama in 2019 for World Youth Day where many young people will gather for their pilgrimage trip.

To raise funds for his trip, Keanan held a wine and dine event on Sunday August 12.

“The event was about celebrating women’s month. Over the past years, this event was organised by leaders of our church youth group called Epic. This year I am hosting it, to honour the women around me, especially from my community,” he said. Keanan, along with Melvin Wakefield and Denzel Swartz who is their mentor, will be going on the pilgrimage next year.
