As we enjoyed our weekend, International Youth Day took place yesterday on August 12. Every year, celebrations are organised on this day to support and promote better awareness of the challenges and problems facing the world’s youth.
2018’s theme was “Safe Spaces for Youth.” This theme addresses the need for safe spaces, where our youth can come together to engage, relate and freely express themselves whilst ensuring their dignity and safety.
With the largest youth population ever of about 1.8 billion young people aged between 10 and 24 across the globe, it is a harsh fact to know that 1 in 10 of these youths lives in conflict zones and that 24 million of them are out of school. Political instability, labour market challenges and limited freedoms have led to a high increase of isolation in the youth.
As A Company, We Believe It Is Important To Spread The Awareness Of This Important Day.
If You Participated In Any Events Over The Weekend For International Youth Day, Let Us Know!
We Would Love To Hear How Everyone Showed Their Support For Our World’s Future.
