My own country is corrupt beyond borders, but there is still hope. I look forward to that day. So, a daughter of my friend is getting input on projects or activities that will promote camaraderie and over-all well-being of youngsters in our locality. They thought of organizing more Sports events. As my conversation with a friend deepen, I gave her my suggestion. In as much as Sports is important, it should not be the sole focus of their program. Maybe, the council can talk about other projects that will have an impact or that will help these young people in their adult life. I suggested, Career Guidance Seminar, Computer Literacy and maybe some talks about Online opportunities, I also suggested Personality Development Seminars and Self-awareness sessions. I told her that we can invite speakers, I know some. I mean, if we are going to think of these as worthless and that the young people will eventually forget. Why couldn’t I? Exposure to these can mean a lot in building the youth’s integrity and broaden their horizons. There is a world out there. I noticed that people silences themselves and succumbs to doing nothing because it’s becoming the way of life. I hope I am wrong. There will be challenges and there will be resistance, and that’s good. When people question something, it means they are moving towards understanding it better. Understanding leads to better deciding on whether it will be good for them or not.
So, I appeal to you, dear online geeks. What can you suggest that the young people come up with? It can be any activities, projects or advocacy.
Thank you for your help.
