WINDHOEK - Youth between 12-21 years are invited to register for a Youth Coaching Camp this weekend at the Gross Barmen Resort outside Okahandja.
Organiser, Nokokure Veii, says the idea is from the realisation of the decaying morals and lost productivity among local youth, leading to a
thoughtful programme of intervention from the various secretariats of the Ovaherero Traditional Authority. She adds that the camp is open to all the young people irrespective of their traditional authorities or youth leagues and the registration fee is N$ 250. “We have a target of 50 youths, plus volunteers who will help with food preparations,” says Veii, adding that experts from different fields will be addressing the youth in different fields.
For the three days at this event, there will be psychologists who will highlight common psychological issues among the youth and possible solutions; pharmacists highlighting common abuse or misuse of pharmaceuticals as intoxicating drugs and possible solutions; general practitioners highlighting common clinical problems, and possible preventative measures as well as social workers highlighting social problems such as teen pregnancies, “blessers”, co-habitation and Gender-Based Violence.
There will also be educational experts talking about the importance of education, youth leaders motivating the youth and traditional experts giving solutions for common issues from a traditional perspective under the theme, Modern youth and cultural/traditional expectations.
On Sunday, there will be a Sunday service for about an hour before departure. More information on the camp and registration is available at: 0817683651.
