The leadership groups represent the key to our foundation’s work. It is only through empowerment that community change in the precarious communities in our country can be sustainable. Leaders will be present and will continue to fuel change if our presence is withdrawn from these communities. This is achieved through community youth leadership training groups, where young people are challenged to become role models for their neighborhood and change factors in their families and communities. Values such as service to their neighbors, effective communication, self-esteem, perseverance, discipline, honesty, etc., are promoted in when these leaders are trained, while encouraging them to participate as volunteers and leaders in the programs that the NGO develops in the community, giving them the opportunity to exercise their leadership.
