Greetings to the readers
Youth Leadership Project had its challenges and achievements in the implementation of its programmes.
Youth Leaders had to be announced January 2009 due to the South African schools and universities examination period. The application due dates were extended three times.
The implementation of the project started late January and the group activities are to be done simultaneously in April.
Mini conference group sharing with invited communities: groups will share their own group’s challenges and achievements in the duration of the projects. They will share their group discussions and their community educational campaigns or events. This will have to be done a week before the end of the project.
Youth Leadership Project Tool Kit is still in progress. Due to the nature of the implementation of the project, unfortunately it will not be available before the project ends. We want to include the mini conference to the kit.
Four groups are established and a total number of 47 youth joined the project
Groups are preparing their group activities or campaigns in educating their communities on HIV/AIDS
The Project Manager attended financial management training and he is willing to workshop the leaders and some of the group members on the 11 of April.
Ludwe Mali has been identified as a facilitator of the coming international workshop. Ikhwezi Lokusa Wellness Centre, the organization supporting the youth leadership project have been identified in a working relationship with the PDoH in working towards the HIV/AIDS Housing Policy for infected and affected people living in the Eastern Cape. More information on this in the coming blog
I am so excited in reporting in the next blog on how we are finalizing our project. Thank you for reading.
