According to Bishop Mwakhwawa, youths should not just rely on parents, but instead use their skills and knowledge when mobilizing resources for their organization.

“Our meeting today with the youths, is aimed at advising them on how they can use their skills to benefit their organization and not always asking parents for support in terms of financial and other resources. The youths should be self-reliant and also to help church in areas of development”, said Auxiliary Bishop Mwakhwawa.

Making the remarks, one of the archdiocesan youth executive member, Saul Jere, described the meeting fruitful, as it has helped them to have a wider knowledge on how they can deal with challenges they are facing in their organization.
