Why I started foun­da­tion on youth’s guid­ance – Haruna

Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Ibrahim Musa Giginyu, Kano

The present youth’s predica­ment in all sec­tors of life is due to lack of proper guid­ance on ei­ther ca­reer choice or study op­tion, says the Chair­man of Hanne Guid­ance and Coun­selling Foun­da­tion for De­vel­op­ment (HGCFD), Malam Abdu Haruna.

Haruna while speak­ing in Kano said HGCFD was formed to bridge this gap that was high­lighted af­ter a re­search car­ried out on 5,000 youth that are ei­ther out of school and un­em­ployed or never be­ing to school at all re­vealed that they have not been ad­e­quately guided.

“The out­come of the re­search con­ducted on over 5,000 youths in our fo­cal points that is Kaza­ure, Roni, Gwiwa and Yankwashi all of Ji­gawa state has re­vealed that, th­ese youths have not been ad­e­quately guided and have not ex­pe­ri­enced any form of coun­selling in their lives. That is why we de­cided to form a foun­da­tion that will coun­sel and guide th­ese youths on their cho­sen ca­reer,” said Haruna.

He added that, the foun­da­tion has suc­ceeded in hold­ing a sym­po­sium for over 400 fe­male youth on ca­reer de­vel­op­ment and a sem­i­nar was also or­gan­ised for par­ents on the im­por­tance of chil­dren en­rol­ment in schools.

“It is very im­por­tant to note that, many of our youths are the way they are sim­ply be­cause they lack guid­ance and we be­lieve with a sin­cere coun­selling and guid­ance our youths will be more pro­duc­tive and more use­ful to our com­mu­ni­ties; that is why we are plan­ning to ex­tend our ges­ture to all nukes and cranny of Ji­gawa state,” con­cluded Haruna.
