VT on the airwaves on Transworld Radio
A brush with showbusiness for our Malawi-based Project Officer this week, as he was invited to speak about Venture Trust's 'Moving On Malawi' programme on Transworld Radio 106.5.
Thanks to our partnerships with the Kachere Police and charity 'Music Crossroads', Greg Watson had the opportunity to share a few thoughts about our work in Malawi:
"Towards the end of the [Moving on Malawi] course we go away to one of the mountains at the invitation of the Chief Mikanga of Ungala and we do some work there, in terms of independence, living skills and again working on some of the group work and choices. Perhaps the most important thing is when the young people come back from that weekend we work individually with each one of them to make an action plan, a goal setting plan of what they want in their lives and how they’re going to get that.
We try to encourage those young people to make better and informed decisions. If a young person wants to become a doctor, we would encourage that and what we do is say “well are you going to school at the moment?” “I’m not going to school” “ well do you think you perhaps need to go to school to start on that process of becoming a doctor?” and it starts very much from day one; what are you going to do? What are you as a young person going to do in your life to make changes?"
