Speaking in an interview with the Generation Times, GLI National Coordinator, Patricia Yasha Manyengo said all is set for the 2019 AGM, as the team assigned to work towards the day are working very hard.
“We have indeed worked hard to make things happen. We are working from zero funding, but we just want to demonstrate that as young leaders we have capacity to make things happen even without funding”, Manyengo said.
She further said it has not been easy to organize the AGM, as they have only relied fund from membership across the country.
“The good thing with GLI, we do not only rely on donors, we have set the spirit within us that we cannot always rely on external hands to support us, rather we have built the youths into the Babylonian spirit of oneness when doing things”, she said.
The AGM which is second for GLI, will be held under the theme “Making things happen” and members will elect new board members to run the organization.
Some of the key issues to be tackled during the AGM include issues concerning leadership, Governance, Entrepreneurship just to mention a few.
Apart from taking part in the elections, the AGM will bring together all young people that are paid up members of GLI across the country, to impart with knowledge on how they can deal up with various issues in their respective communities as well as giving them a platform for interaction.
