LEAD to empower youth in leadership

Over 100 students from Zomba rural are expected to be drilled in leadership skills in areas of malaria, HIV and AIDS and environment.

Speaking to YFM, Leadership, Exploration and Development- LEAD, Coordinator Lisa Bergman said they have organized the camp with the aim of empowering the youth to showcase their capabilities which can be very beneficial to their communities.

“We are aiming to develop leadership skills to 140 secondary school students in Zomba rural for them to gain knowledge in areas like malaria, HIV and AIDS and environmental issues like deforestation,” Bergman said.

Bergman said the youth who are empowered and given much confidence can greatly improve their communities and schools by ironing out challenges that were there because of the absence of involving them in managerial positions.

She added that with the camp, the youth will be able to create action plans for their communities and schools.
