Innovation Through Team Spirit Confronts Every Obstacle

I am Anthon Fabiano, a member of Youth Action Group. it is a great development for the youth to discover themselves and their potential. When we started the Youth Action Group in 2008, we quickly solved a problem of the poverty levels in our community. Mainly it is the perception of the youth that sometimes contributes to the rate of poverty. if they put more emphasis on action oriented instratives, this steers change, on the other hand the vice versa only serves to contradict the whole idea for negative outcomes. My experience through being a member of YAG is that benefits it in reasoning together, confronting inpediments as a formidable;e force and a batallion. I have been able to grow in knowledge, found solutions to my many problems and progressed well. I have been able to move from one level to another and sharpened my dreams for even more wild ambitions. I really need sponsors to do even more.
