Luso Youth Club donated a number of learning materials to underprivileged school going children at a function that was dubbed ‘Go Back to School Campaign’ in the area of Group Village Head Mtogolo, Traditional Authority Malemia in Zomba district.
In his remarks, the District Manager for YONECO in Zomba, Blessings Sabao stated that when citizens and responsible authorities take no heed of development, aspirations for national development becomes nothing but mere wishes.
‘As YONECO, we are delighted by this priceless gesture whereby the youth have brought together their resources to support the needy with assorted learning materials,’ said Sabao.
Group Village Head Mtogolo also hailed the members of Luso Youth Club for their selfless efforts that had seen some needy children from his area getting educational support. The traditional leader said that it is very impressive to note that there are still some young people with a sense of responsibility who opt to use their hard-earned money on supporting the underprivileged than buying alcohol and drugs like some misguided youths do.
In his remarks, the Chairperson for Luso Youth Club, Kelvin Kapachika, hailed YONECO for its tireless efforts in mentoring the group members. Kapachika stated that the group has come of age and they would want to contribute positively to the development of their society.
YONECO facilitated the establishment of the youth club as one way of fostering youth leadership and development in Malawi. Currently, YONECO is supporting a number of youth clubs, managing a number of Youth Drop in Centres, as well as resource centres for the youth.
