But this update will be about one of our big objectives in the project that we have had an information meeting about a youth committee. We had this information meeting two days ago with 51 participants above 16 to listen what this youth committee is about.
We got the youth informed about the project, how it function and what they’re going to do. It seemed like they were interested in this. We’ve heard a lot of positive feedback from both boys and girls. We take that as a victory, because it’s a part objective of the project. We’ve been giving them a deadline to when they have to tell us if they want to be a part of the youth committee.
In the youth committee there will be 7 or 9 youth where they will decide which themes as the project needs to touch so the youth on Emmanuel and themselves can be prepared to leave the orphanage someday. So the idea is to inform them about democracy (That’s why we have 7 or 9 youth so they can try to vote about stuff and try that the majority decide what’s going to happen). Beside that we want to equip them to be leaders, making decisions and take responsibility. They will see that they have a voice and it can be used.
There will be followed up on this.
We are building leaders to change the society!
