Help us ease problems of young people, Govt. urges stakeholders

General News Help us ease problems of young people, Govt. urges stakeholders

Government has called upon non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other stakeholders in the country to assist in easing the suffering of young people.

Ministry of Youth, Sport and Child Development Permanent Secretary (PS), Susan Sikaneta, said government understands the important role the youths play in the country’s development.

Ms. Sikaneta said it is for this reason that various organisations should help young people in engaging them in different economic activities.

She said government was always ready to help youths and the vulnerable children in the easing their problems of poverty and unemployment.

She said 66 per cent of the Zambian population comprised youths hence the need to empower them with various activities.

Ms. Sikaneta was speaking in Lusaka yesterday when the National Milling Corporation (NMC) donated 70 bags of roller meal valued at K2.6 million to her Ministry towards the youth day celebrations.

And National Milling Corporation Public Relations Officer, Esther Chilala, reiterated the corporation’s commitment to helping youths and the government.

    Yes the youth are the leaders of tomorrow and they should be on the top of the agenda.
