Komani youth revive ambassador panel

A GROUP of  Komani  young people have revived the Children’s  Ambassador   Panel , a structure which was started 20 years ago.

The  panel , which was the brainchild of resident Lunga Tsotsi, works within the Chris Hani District and serves as a discussion body for issues facing the  youth .

The  panel  consists of three organisations – the  Komani   Youth Organisation, the Junior Town Council and the School Christian Organisation.

Head of the Children’s  Ambassador   Panel  Juan Botha said the organisa- tions were striving to make a difference in the com- munity as the unemploy- ment rate was high.

“The main aim and vision for these organisations is to empower young minds and determine their interests and skills.

“All schools in  Komani  are represented in these three organisations.”

Tsotsi said, “As the Children’s  Ambassador   Panel , you should be unified and able to share resources. The current challenges that the  youth  are facing are similar to the challenges faced in 1997.

Unite and fight against social injustices, rape and drug abuse.”

The three groups organise activities to benefit the  youth , including a sanitary towel drive, a tinned food drive, beauty pageants and sports activities.
