Wellbeing of the youth is important

Youth are a significant segment of our society and deserve attention by the nation’s duty bearers.
The youth comprise a very significant segment of our population and as such, it is risky to ignore their wellbeing. Lack of employment is a time bomb and it is a sad thing that such a situation should be allowed to continue building up while we turn blind eye.
Youth are a significant segment of our society and deserve attention by the nation’s duty bearers. Besides being unemployed, youth today do not stand for any values; many youth movements focus on ‘bread and butter’ issues, hence are vulnerable and susceptible to manipulation.
Youth should be reminded that the greatness of a person is not measured by the amount of wealth accumulated, but the value for which he or she stands for.
