The Minister of Youth, Rosemary Mbabazi has asked the youth to take advantage of benefits brought by technology to transform the continent other than wasting their time watching pornography.

She made the request yesterday addressing 124 youth from 26 East and Southern African countries at the opening of two-week training in IT use for development taking place at SOS Hermann Gemeiner Rwanda in Kigali city.

Beneficiaries of the training are youth from secondary schools and universities supported through SOS Children’s Villages International.

The training will focus on carrying out campaigns, leadership, and entrepreneurship all entrenched in technology.

Mbabazi asked the youth to play a key role, building the Africa they desire, starting from their countries.

“Don’t think about watching porn films when you have access to technology. You should rather take advantage of it to transform Africa starting with your contribution. The time is now, you don’t have to wait for tomorrow,” she said.

Mbabazi urged them on self-esteem, embracing the good character, determination and focusing on one’s goals as aspiring leaders to transform societies.

Mwanaidi Makame Juma, one of the participants from Zanzibar told IGIHE that he was encouraged by the advice of Minister Mbabazi and pledged to put into reality acquired knowledge.

SOS Children’s Villages operates in 47 African countries. It supports children with vulnerable backgrounds to access education, clothing among other areas uplifting their livelihoods.
