Mentor Wise hosted Enes Kanter Freedom at a community iftar.

Friday 8th April 2022, Mentor Wise hosted Enes Kanter Freedom at a community iftar in partnership with Fellowship Education Society.

Enes arrived in Europe to receive the 2022 Geneva Summit Courage Award for standing out against human rights violations by China. During his England trip, Mentor Wise and FES invited Enes Kanter Freedom to community iftar. Roughly 100 people attended the event, and our mentees had the chance to meet the NBA star and ask questions about activism and his career. It was an incredible experience for the community and the mentees!
