After introducing League for Change forum on November 2, 2019, Fredokiss has taken another big step by organising a big walk to raise funds for Mzuzu Crisis Nursery Orphanage.
On November 9, 2019, the forum organised the big walk that started at Katoto Ground heading to Chimaliro where there is an orphanage named Mzuzu Nursery Crisis.
League for Change President, Penjani Kaluwa said the youth who desire to be agents of change decided to raise funds for the orphanage.
He said the orphanage operates through the help of American donors, which he said was unfortunate as there are ways Malawians themselves can use to assist orphans other than relying on foreign donors.
League for Change, said Kaluwa, is operating in line with one of its objectives, which is to create a platform for the youth and women to be active change agents in their respective societies and communities.
“We want to eliminate that dependency syndrome as most of the orphanages in Malawi are run through the help of western people,” he said.
He further said League for Change wants to lead by example by providing a forum where the youth will participate and have solutions to local problems that are being faced in communities.
In his remarks, Vice President for League for Change-Poly Chapter, Sarah Solomon, said the forum wants to change the mindset of the youth.
“As agents of change, we want to help government in addressing some of the issues which are taken as minor and those that are neglected,” said Solomon, adding the big walk was fruitful as they raised the money which they donated to the orphanage.
“Some of the items that we donated are clothes, food, soap and money together worth close to MK1 million plus other necessities which can be used to run the orphanage,” she said, urging the youth across the country to be part of change by providing solutions in their respective communities.
