Central Deanery youths enlightened on SELL Programme
Sharing Education and Learning for Life (SELL) Programme Resource Team in Malawi engaged young people from Mzuzu township who were hosted at Saint Thomas Catholic Parish.
The event which took place on Saturday 26 March attracted young adults from various communities within Mzuzu in the morning hours up to lunch time.
Introducing the programme to the youths, Leo, the Team leader for SELL Programme Malawi, described the programme as one that will help young adults develop greater awareness within themselves and understand issues affecting the human person in the world.
Leo further explained briefly what each unit of the programme is about and tasked the participants to go into groups to discuss whether the programme should come to their communities and provide reasons for their response.
Through group discussions, all groups came to an agreement that the programme should come to their communities citing a number of reasons which included;
- The programme will help us in building peaceful communities
- Helping we the young adults to know who we really are
- Helping us to become good and better leaders
- Helping us to appreciate the wisdom of our traditions
- Helping us to build interfaith relations
