Young African Leaders given a look at West Texas business

Posted:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Young African Leaders part of the Mandela Washington Fellowship are taking a journey through Lubbock. 

The fellows learned about business across West Texas. The Rotary Club of Lubbock honored 25 students with a luncheon Wednesday.

During their time in Lubbock they've visited organizations that have shaped West Texas Values. The students were given an opportunity to visit the South Plains Food Bank and Lubbock Meals on Wheels. 

The students say this is an experience they'll take with them. 

"For us as Africans what we are going to take back is the matter of motivating ourselves and the spirit of giving and volunteering," Pascal Anasigre, a Mandela Washington fellow, said. "Because that is what we have seen in Lubbock." 

The Rotary Club and Rotary International are heavily invested in Africa. They focus on eradicating polio, clean water and literacy.
