Africa Youth Day celebrated
This year's theme for Africa Youth Day is "Youth voices against corruption in Africa". The day was commemorated on Thursday 1 November at the African Union commission (AUC) headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and across the African continent by youth development organisations, civil society institutions and public sector departments.
Locally the founder of Guidy Worx, Hein Scheepers, said that the event would bring young people together to commemorate Africa Youth Day with the objective of creating, maintaining and increasing awareness among the public on the critical role young people play in the transformation of society.
Guidy Worx's strong belief is that the youth are seeds that need to be watered in order for them to flourish and blossom beautifully and uniquely. "We believe in the enhancement and grooming of these young ones' potential to unleash greatness in them.
We continue to energetically and enthusiastically push forward in the pursuit of greatness out of the young people of our continent," said Scheepers.
