Lesotho Times - - News - Lim­pho Sello

A CALL has been made for young peo­ple to be in­no­va­tive to avoid the pit­falls that lead to HIV/AIDS in­fec­tion and un­wanted preg­nan­cies among other chal­lenges.

This was said yes­ter­day by United Na­tions Pop­u­la­tion Fund (UNFPA) Rep­re­sen­ta­tive to Le­sotho, Therese Zeba, dur­ing the launch of an in­no­va­tion fund meant to as­sist young peo­ple at Maseru Mall.

She said the US$20 000 (about M298 783) fund was meant to pro­mote a cul­ture of in­no­va­tion so the youths be­come self-suf­fi­cient.

Par­tic­i­pants pose for a group por­trait dur­ing the launch of the in­no­va­tion fund yes­ter­day.
