THERE is need for young people to complement the government’s efforts by contributing to the development of this country instead of relying on it to do everything, Youths for Change patron Francis Chipasha has said.
Speaking on Wednesday when his organisation donated 50-bags of cement worth K3, 500 to Shikoswe Christian Brethren Church in Kafue, Mr. Chipasha noted that young people have the potential to make a difference in society.
Mr. Chipasha observed that a lot of youths are engaging in activities which are not productive and derail the country’s development agenda.
“Kafue Youths at Work is a team of trend setters and they chose to be responsible citizens today by partnering with the church.
“This is a challenge that the organization is imposing on its fellow youths in Zambia because mostly a lot of youths are involved in a lot of activities which are not productive, so today the youths in Kafue are at work showing how to be responsible by contributing to the building of a church in Kafue,” Mr. Chipasha said.
“It’s time the youths decided to begin to give all the time.
The youths in Kafue are complementing government’s efforts and I doubt if this is the end, this is the beginning for the youths in Kafue to contribute to the development of this country,”
“Youths at Work chairperson, Nina Kujila, reaffirmed her organisations commitment to making a positive impact in society.
Meanwhile, Christian Brethren Church Elder, Mr. David Chileshe hailed Youths at Work for celebrating Christmas by donating the 50-bags of cement.
Mr. Chileshe said that the bags of cement will go a long way in helping the church complete the structure which will be hosting about 200 congregants every week.
