The Pope, our Hero of the vWeek

Monday, March 26, 2018 - 15:18

This week, we celebrate our hero of the week Pope Francis who has encouraged young people to “keep shouting and not allow the older generations to silence their voices and anesthetize their idealism”.

In Africa where being a young person is almost tantamount to being a child with no voice and power at all, it is critical that young people amplify their voice as they make demands to ensure that they take charge and leadership in holding leaders accountable.

More than that, it is important that the young person in Africa takes leadership in transforming their lives for the better and facilitating for change on their own merit.

You and me can support this journey by genuinely mentoring and coaching young people in our private and public spaces so that there is a change for the better. Let us leave no young person behind as we forge a new narrative in line with the new AAU CSPV.

 Here is to us supporting young people make a difference today!
