BLOG: Alcohol Advertising In Kenya

BLOG: myIOGT – IOGT Is What Our Members Make Of It

Our members and Member Organization are the heart of IOGT International and the “myIOGT – Life Set Free Together” campaign offers a platform and channel to them all to express what IOGT means to them and to indicate where IOGT International should go, headed into the future.

The idea is simple: in an open space, much like a fair or market place, every Member Organisation present at World Congress 68 will be exhibiting one or some of their projects, activities, campaigns that they are most proud of – that they think is a Promising Practice, to be shared with the IOGT family…
