Youth Empowerment

Creating a Culture of hard work, self-sustenance, and giving back to the communitycamp-2009

The youth are a critical force in the development of any society. Our programs are aimed at empowering the youth to take charge of their destiny and become the forces of social social change. They are introduced to activities that help them gain self-esteem, believe in themselves, gain analytical and decision making skills, and general life skills.

It is important that our youth be raised to become socially responsible citizens. Besides providing youth with material and technical support, our youth are encourages them to engage in socially aware projects and activities that will promote the good of the community. Through this work, they become aware of the needs of the people in communities around them. It is an opportunity to learn and share talents and gifts with those who are underprivileged, especial y the elderly, single mothers, widows, child-headed families, and the sick. The resulting end is that young people who take an active role in community development have a heightened sense of duty and responsibility. This is critical to raising responsible children and to building a strong nation.
