Marianist Brothers, of the Society of Mary, in the Catholic Diocese of Karonga have said Malawian youth can do much better if they employ discipline, God’s guidance and diligence in their escapades.
Brother Thomas Naini, Director of Miracle Technical Institute in Karonga, told Nyasa Times on the sidelines of a graduation that took place at the institution Wednesday that there was a lot of “potential” in Malawian youth.
“If only they can work extra harder, and employ God’s guidance in their endeavours,” Naini said. “Malawi’s next generation will be geared towards immeasurable success.”
Presently Malawi has an estimated population of about sixteen million, according to the National Statistics Office (NSO), with sixty percent of this population being youths.
Unfortunately, about 85 percent of the youth population is unemployed. Naini said as a society they are determined to making a difference in people’s lives through education and social work, especially in younger generation.
“That’s is why we don’t only equip our students with educational skills. We are also verily interested in their spiritual and cognitive development,” said Naini.
He said since Miracle was introduced in 1999, it has nurtured hundreds of young men and women with technical expertise which they are employing in various sectors of the Malawi’s economy.
On Wednesday, Miracle graduated 88 students with certificates in tourism and hospitality management, carpentry and joinery, bricklaying and electrical installation.
Marianist Brothers also run Chaminade Secondary School in partnership with the Ministry of Education of the Government of Malawi.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
