Airtel Malawi has invested almost MK1.5million towards National Youth Council Annual General Assembly (AGM) to be held in Lilongwe from March 26 to 27 under the theme: Youth, Agriculture and ICT.
Speaking during a cheque presentation on Monday, the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, Nora Chavula said young people in the country should take a leading role in various sectors of society.
“We have a strong belief in youth power, this is why we did not hesitate to invest in them through their forthcoming AGM,” she said.
She hailed the council for holding an AGM whose theme touches more on Agriculture and ICT.
“Putting an ICT face to Agriculture would not only add value but also facilitate vibrancy and competitiveness of the sector’s activities”.
She observed that the culture can rapidly change the traditional way of doing things thereby exposing the country’s agricultural products to unexplored markets across the globe.
NYC Executive Director Aubrey Chibwana thanked the company for the financial support to their AGM which is the highest organ of the council.
“This is a platform where youth leaders meet to help shape the direction of youth development in Malawi and add voice to numerous policy issues,” he said.
He said the youth leaders use AGM to engage with government and all stakeholders by deliberating and making resolutions that are submitted for inclusion in their youth programming.
