In accordance with the 2022 plan, IAYSP-Niger, with its collaborators (FFWPU, NGO Cellule Familiale, the AHA2063 association) twice organized a training workshop for representatives of several structures and youth groups in Niamey. The first workshop took place from December 13 to 14 at the Martial Arts Academy, and the second workshop from December 28 to 29, 2022 at the Palais du 29 Juillet (General Seyni Kountché Stadium). During the two workshops, the president IAYSP-Niger ILLa Bizo Ousseini explained IAYSP and its objectives to the participants, then the special envoy Sasaki Tatsuo presented a perspective of married life, child education, reproduction, planning family, neuroscience and youth behavior for sustainable development. A total of 72 representatives of various youth groups took part in these workshops.
The participants underlined the importance of these initiatives and called for their multiplication and expansion nationwide, in other regions and departments of Niger. The participants gave their impressions and made some recommendations in order to enrich, according to them, character training programs in Niger. According to their opinions, youth really needs this light for its development, because knowledge liberates man. Recommendations include: Multiplication of character formation in Niger, Creation of several other structures responsible for raising public awareness, Mobilize and encourage young people to participate massively in these training courses, etc.
In the future, we intend to continue these training courses for students in Niamey and in other establishments, schools and other training centers in several cities in Niger.
