Youth and students meeting to revive the Youth as the Pace Setters
IAYSP-Uganda had a 3 day Youth Workshop organized for the youth and students from 9th – 11th December, 2021.
The first day of the 3 Day workshop started with character education and the principles of creation as well as understanding the origin of conflict which was given by the National Leader, Mr. Gimeyi Moses During the session, as the Youth we came to understand the importance of life goals and having a definite purpose in our lives.
The second day of the workshop we had a session by the President of IAYSP Kezimbira Asan Titus who shared an introduction about IAYSP and then also gave a message about leadership while citing great leaders in the past who did not become great in their old age but started even when they were in their youthful times. Following his message, we had an opportunity to host and listen to the Resident City Commissioner (RCC) of Kampala City, Hudu Hussein and for record purposes, his message has been extracted directly as it was given to us and added at the end.
The third day of the workshop was concluded with the youth watching a video about the internal education.
YOUTH AND STUDENTS AS PACE SETTERS
A presentation by Hudu Hussein, Resident City Commissioner (RCC) For Kampala Capital City
Firstly, I want to begin by appreciating the Family Federation for World Peace for this initiative. More than anything, this country needs a voice of wisdom to shed a light upon the path of our young ones. Personally, I am so humbled by this invitation and opportunity to speak directly to the carriers of the life of this nation tomorrow.
Uganda is a young country with the youngest population in Africa. Compared to other nations out of Africa, we are adolescents. The period we are in is one of self-discovery. We are ripe for innovation and hard work. The age we are living in is favorable to young ambitious men and women. And given the situation we find ourselves in, the situation of a young country of young people, I have this to say to you:
Your character and personality are your brand. Do not be consumed away by academia and connections. A time comes when your “A” in school cannot help you. We are living in a day where two questions are asked; the first is, what can you do? Are you just a tik tok queen twerking for the world to see how well-endowed you are or do you have a skill you have learned? As a young man, I was adept at Business. I worked across the border from Busia to Nairobi selling merchandize. And I was not smuggling. I was learning the skill of entrepreneurship. No one will teach you that in school. You will not add anything to this country if you do not add anything to yourself. At the end of the day, what can you do?
