A group of young people aiming to make a difference and empower others is starting to leave their mark on Vhembe.
Liberty Munei from Ha-Tshikonelo village has come up with the idea to start a youth-empowerment project called the All for All Foundation, to impact the lives of other young people. He has already roped in at least 17 volunteers for his project to visit schools and encourage and empower pupils with knowledge. They also distribute sanitary towels and stationery.
“We have so far managed to visit 10 villages and a school where we interacted with villagers and pupils on a variety of social matters that concern people in today’s life,” he said. “Our initiative is aimed at visiting 200 villages and 100 schools, and by so doing, make a difference.”
The foundation was started in August 2020. Munei wishes to encourage and motivate girls, especially from the rural areas, to study hard for them to become leaders in all areas of life. “We also train youths in small business ventures, so that they get to know more about business,” he said.
They encourage young people to stand up and build their own lives, and not to wait for other people to tell them what to do. “Creativity is the key to each problem that we are faced with in the world,” he said. “Every problem is an opportunity for solutions. As a foundation, we believe that girls and women are important and that, without them, the world would be a mess. We strongly stand against the abuse of women and children.”
