Unless the youth work together and remain determined to do something about the unemployment crisis, it will simply remain a discussion discussed over and over. We have the potent...

Everyone is talking about the same thing and that is “youth unemployment”. Youth unemployment has become a common subject such that it has put government under pressure from oppositions.

With an influx of institutions that offer higher education, youths are now able to access tertiary education and acquire skills to do jobs. Now the questi...

They say “money makes the world go round” and that “education is the key to success”. With money invested in important sectors like education there can be development. That is why if I were a millionaire I would invest more in education and youth empowerment. I would invest in education especially in girl child education. I would make sure that the majority of girls access education because they say that “when you educate a girl child you educate a nation”. This is...

Even people who come to visit find our community their home because of the peace we share. We know what...
