Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta has ad­vised the youth to unite and sup­port each other in achiev­ing their dreams.

The Pres­i­dent en­cour­aged them to work hard and fo­cus on ac­tiv­i­ties that will im­prove their lives and contribute to na­tion build­ing.

“I want to en­cour­age you to be peo­ple who shall be ded­i­cated to each other and be com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing one another, build­ing durable friendships that will see you realise your dreams,” Uhuru said.

He was speak­ing at PCEA Mu­teero Church in Karen dur­ing a fundrais­ing drive in sup­port of the com­ple­tion of the church’s youth cen­tre. The cen­tre will be used for meet­ings and in nur­tur­ing tal­ent among other ac­tiv­i­ties tar­get­ing to em­power young peo­ple.

He asked young peo­ple to cul­ti­vate a cul­ture of unity and co­op­er­a­tion, say­ing pool­ing ideas and re­sources was key to ad­dress­ing some of the chal­lenges that face them.

The Pres­i­dent com­mended the church for main­stream­ing youth em­pow­er­ment ac­tiv­i­ties in their broad pro­gramme, say­ing the move is im­por­tant as it ad­dressed both the spir­i­tual and ma­te­rial needs of the con­gre­ga­tion.

He com­mended the youth for com­ing to­gether to sup­port each other not only spir­i­tu­ally but in oth- er ar­eas of life, say­ing it is by build­ing strong re­la­tions that they can ex­cel in their en­deav­ours.

“The per­for­mance by the young peo­ple was fan­tas­tic. I liked their vi­sion of help­ing one another not just in spread­ing the gospel but also in nur­tur­ing their tal­ent as a group and in­di­vid­u­ally,” Uhuru said. The Pres­i­dent urged the church to work with the Youth min­istry to ac­cess funds.
