Empowering and Enabling Young People to Succeed

Every alternate year the organisation will give young leaders the opportunity to braistorm, plan, organise and run 2 camps for the young people. This planning by core leaders in their early teens (from around 14 years to 18 years) occurred in May 2013, during a retreat for them. In this retreat, the young people connected well with each other through water sport activities, sat down to brainstorm, and plan for activities in the camps.

Two camps were planned, one for girls, run by the girls and another by the boys, run by the boys. After they went on the retreat to plan, duties were delegated to youths from the various provinces, to further prepare the details for the camps.

As the days of the camp drew nearer these core leaders met to finalise, prepare and rehearse the program that they had planned.

Abigail said," I'll do my best to get my friends to come and help to prepare this coming Saturday" ... and indeed she did round up about 15 of her friends to come to the Foundation's office to help.

For the next 3 weeks,these committed young people did their best to prepare for the logistics of the camps, so that everything from the invitation video, to the decor of the stage, to the name tags, the campbooks and even the details of the teaching sessions were all ready.

Without a doubt, these young core leaders have increased in their self-esteems and personal worthiness, as they know that what they have done will definitely benefit the campers who will attend these camps (about 230 expected).

Said one mother whom we met, about her son who came to help in the preparations, "Thank you for organising activities like these for my son to be involved in. It is very meaningful and definitely builds up my son's character!"

The Foundation is proud of the our young people and will spare no effort to instill good character and leadership qualities in their lives.

Any feedback and comments are most welcome to assist us to better our services to the youth!

Thank you!
