Youth asked to focus on character growth to win confidence

Nyamira County Youth Leader Geoffrey Ondieki. He asked the youth to focus on their character development to win the trust of adults.

The youth have been asked to put more effort in their character development to enable them win the confidence of the public as they graduate to adults.

This was said by Nyamira Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Conference youth leader Geoffrey Ondieki at Sironga National School.

Flanked by the school Chaplain Kefah Obondi, Ondieki asked the youth to shun intoxicating drinks and drugs because they ruin their lives.

“These drugs have lured our children and sent them to the grave early,” he said, asking parents to live exemplary Christian lives for their children to copy.

He asked youth to use the short holiday breaks to bond with their parents as they balance their studies with some light physical work like weeding the vegetable yards, cleaning the compound and ironing clothes for the family.

The youth are taken through an outdoor activity during their conference at Sironga National School.

During the session that attracted more than to 300 girls from within the county, they were taught on good morals like honesty, sympathy and empathy.

Saying that females have proved to be some of the best leaders in the world, the chaplain said that the church has laid elaborate plans to empower the girl child to cushion her from gender based abuse and violence .
