SLP says: Our country’s most valuable resource is its young people
Press Release:– Our country’s most valuable resource is its young people. Young people represent our nation’s future. The security of growth and development in time to come rest in the hands of today’s youth. Our hopes and aspirations must be embodied in in our young people.
However, the power that our youth possess seem to be stifled by economic chaos, social injustice, political intolerance and apathy.
Let us embrace the month of April as Youth Month by challenging ourselves as young people to speak to critical issues affecting our wellbeing.
Let us take hold of all opportunities to participate in public life, especially those available to influence decisions which will impact the future of our country. Young people are powerful agents of change and progress when they are educated and empowered to participate in decision-making.
Let our voices be heard in the discussion of matters of national interest. Express with clarity our views on education, healthcare, employment opportunities and the management of our country’s finances. Be loud in our condemnation of all forms of wastage of our national resources.
Let us call on other young people to be proactive in order to encourage effective changes which will improve conditions for the growth and development of our youth population.
We must not only hope for a better tomorrow. Instead, we must act progressively now. Change is embodied in progress so let’s be inspired by a deep desire for success.
Let us as young people, celebrate this month with the full awareness that we are the leaders of tomorrow!
Happy Youth Month!
