koko, a vlog for teenage girls by GB Ministries, won the 'Best use of video' category at the Premier Digital Awards 2017 yesterday for film Resilient.
koko enables teenage girls to ‘keep on keeping on’ in a hope-filled way, and is a great resource for youth leaders. Resilient addresses issues around mental health and can be viewed on YouTube.
The awards were attended by GB Ministries' Director Jules Murdy last night in London, pictured below collecting the award. You can watch Premier's highlights video from the event.
