The International Youth Day is celebrated annually on 12th, August. This day is dedicated to celebrating the successes and potentials abound in youths all around the world. It is also a day set aside to commend the efforts of everyone who have youths development as their concern and have worked in creating platforms and opportunities for them to thrive.
Thus, Mercy Wave Foundation deserves this commendation for its outright commitment to foster youth development in all spheres of life. It is indeed true that the youths are the future and investing in the youths creates a tantamount investment into the future.
Beyond the provision of its international platform as a source of employment avenue, with majority of her staff as youth, the Mercy Wave Foundation ably led by its ever magnificent CEO, Princess Dr. Mercy Uwakwe, has gone even steps further to provide avenues for sustainability youth development and empowerment through its various youth schemes that cuts across Tech, Agriculture, Education and Mentorship programs.
For many that have interacted with the CEO, it is no surprise that her foundation has invested so much in Youth Development as she is a firm believer in the ability and potentials of youths if giving the platform to showcase their talent.
As we join our counterparts around the world to celebrate this auspicious day of youth appreciation, we must remind ourselves that there is still a whole lot of work to be done by youths to achieve that high level of societal acceptance. As leaders of tomorrow, preparation must start today and thus, we must graciously appreciate the platform that has said yes to the dreams and aspirations of youths.
Happy International Youth Day.
