C4C interacts with Lilongwe youth
A Lilongwe based non-profit organisation, Chance for Chance Malawi (C4C), recently held a youth forum in Traditional Authority Tsabango’s area to sensitise young people on the role they can play in economic development.
This is being coordinated under a program called rites of passage, meant to guide the youth in areas of juvenile delinquency and human rights, while exploring their hidden talents.
The organisation’s Programs Manager, Grace Waluza, said they strongly believe every youth has a talent and is capable of bringing change.
“We help young people like these one in Kawale to take charge of their future, we support their lives and potential…some of them encounter challenges such as being homeless, unemployed or in conflict with the law,” Waluza said.
At the forum were entrepreneurs and motivational speakers who included Chimwemwe Manyozo, Rose Chasowa and Blessings Banda to inspire the youth.
In an interview, Manyozo said he was humbled to share his life experience because he believes the knowledge might help fellow youths with their decisions.
“It’s very sad that many youths are unable to harness their skills, knowledge is power and these career talks can help them in their future endeavours,” Manyozo said.
One of those who attended the talks, Francis Chigwenembe, said the forum has enlighted him and is encouraging his colleagues to be patronising such events.
C4C started in 2013 with an aim of assisting the youth in behaviour change, self awareness and becoming independent.
