What is the
Ten years ago Young Life Africa started a Freedom Walk with a prayer walk up Mt. Kilimanjaro. This walk inspired the leaders to reach out to more and more kids. Now, Young Life Africa is in 21 countries throughout Africa with thousands of kids participating. The Freedom Walk Africa will take place in July 2014. The group will be walking 1500 km across the Tanzania slave caravan.

The whole purpose of this Freedom Walk and Movement is to pray for Freedom: to break chains and shackles that enslave young people all over the world physically and spiritually. Specifically in Africa we are praying for forgiveness, restoration, reconciliation and redemption for all was stolen, destroyed, ruined by centuries of the slave trade in Africa - and we are praying for a new generation of young leader who are REALLY free spiritually and physically, who will proclaim and work for Freedom all over Africa and beyond. But the impact of the sins of the slave trade and the centuries of selling and trafficking humans (that continues today) is not just in Africa, but crosses oceans and covers continents.
We want people to be praying for chains to be broken and for freedom in their own streets and neighborhoods and lives. Get our Freedom Walk prayers and updates in an email. Help us by praying for those on the freedom walk and for specific requests as they come up before, during, and after the walk. Add your own prayers and concerns. Also include this in as many prayer networks as you can: churches, Young Life area and regions, bible studies and Sunday school classes - we want as many people engaged as possible praying for Freedom for young people all over the world. This is also a great way to hear the stories and prayers of those that are walking in Africa and praying around the world.

ShareYour Freedom Walk Prayer
Start YoursIn Your Own City
Be creative. Organize a Freedom Walk or a Freedom Prayer event in your own area. Walk the a neighborhood that is enslaved by a spirit of poverty, or with a history of violence and racism, or a place where life is devalued, sold or thrown away. Have a Freedom prayer event coinciding with the walk in Africa in real time--or do it at another time. Seek in your own places where Freedom needs to be proclaimed and chains need to be broken. You can involve your church group, campaigner group, a Young Life Area or Region, or as an individual. Need help? Send us a question.
