Speaking in an interview on the sidelines of the road shows, Youth Out Loud Project Coordinator Ralph Nyirenda commended the support from all stakeholders.
“We were on the road conducting road shows from Monkey Bay to Chiponde. The road shows attracted all our stakeholders including village chiefs, the police, parents and the youth. We interacted and shared ideas on how to move forward.
“And from the group that we trained as youth journalists. We gave them a chance to interview some of the individuals from the audience as part of their practice. We are thankful for the support and we promise
to deliver,” Nyirenda said.
He further commended UNICEF for investing in the project, saying the Malawian youth face numerous challenges therefore needed a platform to be heard.
