The Apostolic Faith Mission of Namibia National Youth Council has called on the National Youth Council to champion the review of green schemes across the country, push for the construction of vocational training centres nationally, while ensuring that Namibia becomes a more enabling and rewarding country for young innovators and inventors, to ensure that the country remains competitive at continental and global scales.
The AFM youth, led by the National Chairperson Patrick Molutsi, said this at a high-level meeting with the executive director Sharonice Busch and other leaders of the National Youth Council on 2 May 2023.
The AFM Youth, since becoming affiliated with the NYC in 2020, did not have prior opportunities to formally meet with the leadership of NYC.
The objective of the meeting was to familiarize with the NYC leadership, NYC mandates, affiliates roles and responsibilities, share the mandate of the AFM Youth, how stakeholders work together, and to find out what agenda the NYC has planned for the Faith Based Organizations.
Additionally, the council presented the organisation’s focus areas for the year, which include improving educational outcomes by, among others, strengthening and supporting public and private vocational training institutions and advocating for increased access to sports in schools.
The AFM Youth are currently planning their 10th anniversary in June, a girl-child programme planned for Windhoek, and a treatment adherence program.
