The Modimolle based non-governmental organisation (NGO) Limpopo Poverty Alleviation Project (LPAP) will be hosting a youth development summit this year, where they will be targeting young people from across the province.

Founding member of the Limpopo Poverty Alleviation, Leslie Nkanyane said the summit will be targeting young women, unemployment youth, including those who live in rural areas.

“The aim of this summit is to strengthen the capacities of young people to enable them to take charge of their own wellbeing through building their potential to the fullest. Our view as LPAP is that the summit should reflect on goals of the Limpopo provincial government as well as the National Development Plan,” Nkanyane said. 

He said the summit will address among other issues job creation, drug abuse, education skill development, health and teenage pregnancy. 

LPAP has also established Leslie Life Coaching Centre which according to Nkanyane, will serve as a vehicle that will empower.

He said they were hoping to launch this programs in all districts of Limpopo. 

Nkanyane said they are currently pleading with the government, local leaders, parents, community and the private sector to contribute in the possible success of this big event.
