In line with World International Youth Day 2020, a nongovernmental organisation, BEWIAfrica has charged youth across the country to be more resilient and get involved in their individual national activities positively.
The NGO, which is consistent with its personal ethos and conforms with the tenets of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5, made this known in a media release it issued to mark International Youth Day observed every August 12.
The Founder and CEO, Florence Hungbo, while advising youth to avoid violence, urged them to embrace true love which breeds togetherness and peace.
“Most importantly, they should always be each other’s voice in any circumstances as they say ‘youths are the pillars of any nation’. Hence, they should live up to that so as to be ready to lead when leadership finally hits them.”
Although BEWIAfrica is dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship amongst women by mobilising support for women-owned ventures and businesses, children and female students, it assured the youth of its well designed plans for them.
“Over the years, BEWIAfrica has encouraged some enterprising women to muster the courage to defy the inhibiting stereotype that prevented female entrance into jobs considered the exclusive preserve of men because of their technical and vigorous nature,” Hungbo noted.
According to her, the NGO is joining the United Nations and the world to identify with the youth despite the global pandemic.
“We would have had a conference to properly address and empower the youth. We, however, are not oblivious of the pandemic and safety measures.
“We want to assure our youth that we haven’t forgotten them and we have very appealing plans set specially for their enhancement,” she adds.Follow us on social media
