That kindness and teamwork will serve us better than greed and selfishness that our nation deserves productive and enterprising citizens and not drug peddlers.
It is evident as the English adage goes, Once a tall tree was a seed, Once a tall building was on a piece of paper, Once a king was a crying baby and strong nation by the efforts and coordination of the youths is brought up from a developing country. Many African states have a large number of youth with strong ideas filled with aura to drive a country forward. The youths are said to be the future of any nation. Therefore, a good and strong foundation should be laid to make this come true.
First and foremost, the youths should be made to be in the known and furthermore be educated. This has already been put into actions by the help of the government. Through the introduction of free education and provision of funds like High Education Loans Boarding (H.E.L.B) and programs such as Joint Admission Board (J.A.B) in institutions of higher learning. In the long run there will be a generation of youths who are empowered through education. Once the youths are educated we are assured of a bright future full of learned people. My opinion, dream is to share ideas to build a strong nation through decision making. One of the most adventurous thing is to become an abate on our focus as youths for not to lay a hand on our visions.
In times we should overcome, empower through teamwork among the nations in Africa/rest of the world to co-operate with the co-ordinate and mold the learning to give everyone an opportunity to not finagle among the youths to come up with on nation.
More so, China has benefited from Africa through acquiring labour. This is evident whereby the youths act as a source of labour in the projects carried out by the chinesse. This creates job employment and reduces the rates of involuntary, unemployment which has been rampant in our country. In addition the chinesse also after labour to African countries example in road constructions where they work mostly as Engineers hence providing them an open market for their skills and this benefits them by enabling them to repatriate their profits earned. Kenya has a lot of economic activities which she benefits from, like horticultural activity which has provide job opportunities to a lot of Youths in Kenya at Naivasha.
The activities has brought a lot of centers to Towns and Urban is expanding into Rural, Most Youths because of this activities have learn at an early age to stop over dependency and pursuing their goals.With much positivity and contributions from the government in the coming generation, the education system in developing African states should attain a higher accolade that will make the youths to be easily hired and get job opportunities hence reducing heavy dependency on the working population this will make the resources to be less strained by the stability attained in the economies per capital. The youths should also stand strong as one and express their needs and vision for their countries. The Government helps in boosting system of Education through fund raising and Harambee for supporting Nations by building up Schools, Health Centers and also providing free Education to Youths. Many Nations can form different organizations to share many ideas to come up with job opportunities for Youths to avoid handless, In addition to build up the young Nations through hard work also reducing laziness to among Youths.
Social stratification has brought a negative impact to many African states. People have lived to base them according to their classes in the society hence making other feel less appreciated and accepted which may even lead low self-esteem.
You may find in some states people will be given acknowledgement according to the position they occupy. Once equality is manifested amongst citizens people will be able to co-ordinate together and mold the future of their nation, in my opinion, a better nation can be built by learning to give everyone an opportunity to exhibit their skills and economic background. By giving Citing of a particular Nations the same chances it helps in reducing crimes, Prostitution, Robbery with violent, coming up of streets children in which many parents give up their children due to hardship of low living standard and opening up many different activities to keep off Youths from joining bad companies. Less development in rural areas has brought a big impact on the residences living there where many Youths are idol due to Nations not getting equal funds or equipment that they are living in there. Male children are given more opportunities than female children due to many societies believing that they are meant to be house wives and mothers that most things they are denied which could have improve the building of Nations if they were always given equal chances.
My opinion on the one belt, one road initiative is that by stretching out a hand of support to help one another to create a better friendship. In addition to the using of one currency among the various states. The one belt one road initiative has brought a positive impact in most of the countries, Thus we should not only focus on most of development but also on the strategy of improving our society. The efforts of each one of us can go a long way to make this journey of development a reality. For instance, recently our youths in Kenya in collaboration with Japan set the satellite in space from their country. Technology has also brought employment in various Nations which most Youths open up cybers for those who don’t have the modern devices to use, In which there some of Youths who are employed in those cybers to guide those people on how to use the devices there. By coming up with the CCTvs cameras in different fields has improved on security sector and modes of stealing that has become rampant in different Nations by those unemployed Youths. Modern equipment have been introduced by different Nations in Health sectors that has reduced the rate of death among the people because most of Youths have been encouraged to take careers like Medicine by the use of those machines which reduce their work and most diseases can be treated encouraged to take careers like Medicine by the use of those machines which reduce their work and most diseases can be treated now.
My opinion on the relationship between African Youths and the use of internet is that it has boosted the system of education in a drastic way. This has been portrayed through the services provide based on online education whereby one no longer has to be in a classroom to study. Some services providers have also formed education apps that provide free source of research to learners at all levels and also enable them to know more by exposing them to extensive research.
This has made it easier to learn more while getting exposure from others and in so doing networking has been boosted. The trade done among different Nations and different tribes in those Countries has made a big improvement between the Youths who are living in those particular Nations which has brought an end of disunity among Nations. By sharing different ideas, more jobs are created and many young investors are coming up which attracts other Youths to work hard to be able to reach where their fellow Youths are.
There is a very strong view that most of the social problems are the direct results of the neglect of education and development for the past decades. Some of the things be it unemployment, teenage pregnancies, the increasing the of drug use, formation of groups instead leading to an increase of gang or crime, corruption and greed. Young people today have a greater responsibility to address to problems, by effective and positive way of handling and doing this they must be all empowered to overcome howling challenges.
If the expiration and expectation of the young people are not integrated in our nation planning effort, we are essentially ignoring the future of the youth toward the nation. This is why a viable and efficient educational system is vital for any country. But probably our youth, the youth of every forward-looking nation. This is the reason to why a self believe youth should be given more than enough and efficient education for the better of a strong nation and also future of the nation.
We also need more than good education system .Youths of today also need more then recreational programs and social institution that will inculcate in the nation and cultural values and attitudes which will enable them to overcome their national development challenges and become good, productive and patriotic citizens.
The youth of today also required the creation of vibrant empowerment and the skills development centers that will provides avenues for the youth to involve themselves in nation building activities is essentially vital. With these, it will be able to provide youth with the leadership skills, team spirit and be able to develop healthy habit and positive attitudes which will faster virtues like honesty fraternity and patriotism with the presence of these attitude in our young peoples, ownership, respect and interest in the development of the country will be instilled in all great positivity ways.
Introducing the youth with treated and national values has been the concern of every progressives society everywhere. Our elders as great people to us had a way of doing their effecting through various rites and groups and they have succeeded.
There are always obviously some disturbing aspects in trying to bring about youths development but the basic idea of having a national youth organization to inculcate national and cultural values into youth and inundate them with patriotism is a good ideas.
By just imagining we youth having a national youth organizations or even different organization all teaching our young people the shared values, beginning with sense of nationhood that we should all see ourselves as one nation with a common destiny. That kindness and teamwork will serve us better than greed and selfishness that our nation deserves productive and enterprising citizens and not drug peddlers. The honest service and helping people in need is nobler that riches from robbery and corruption.
That volunteerism helps the nation more that people instigating violence and destruction of public property. That national service matters to the welfare of our people, that crime hurts and whatever is good for the nation and also for all of us as individuals. By fundamentally, let me appeal to parents and authorities not to always see young people detractors to national development but instead partners in the developing process of a country. When they well empowered and counseled, it would be very surprising to see what the can contributes to make nation strong.
What is needed is that they should be taken into confidence and given a direction to some constructive works. This massive manpower can do wonders provided its enthusiasm is harnessed for development work. Let there be no doubt about their strength, youths are sure to work hard for its fulfillment. They have resources, guts and imagination to explain it to the people in details and make it a success. They will feed more than satisfied by the realization a role in the nation building efforts. This realization will encourage them to put their best into it.
According to me as youth, I thought it would be better to discuss the role of youth in nations building. Secondly, in my thoughts, “Youth is the spark which needs no ignition”. Youth is that clay which can be molded in either shape one wants. In my belief, this is the sole reason for both exploitation and utilization of youth in the destruction and construction of any nation respectively. I agree that youth is not given a proper chance to prove their potentials in countries like ours.
The best way to strengthen our youth is provide them education not just any kind of education, but the right kind of education which makes them scientific, logical, open-minded, self-respecting, responsible, honest and patriotic as youth put our effort and level best to make the nation stronger for future and better tomorrow. The strong nation belongs to us youth who are working for it.
In conclusion, my dream concerning youths in Africa is that one day our youths will run countries while being on the forefront in matters of science and technological advancement.
