Youth Real Fellowship

Lesotho
Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

The problem that invades the globe is of disrespect to ladies by gents, especially youth. I am bothered by the way guys treat chicks. They don't have hobbies except of telling ladies "I love you."! Trying to follow it up it's a red lie. When they try to have fun, they move about searching for a lady who looks "cheatable". This makes women very subject and even at mature stage of marriage they are valueless.

I suggest starting a Youth Real Fellowship club at my institution,the National University of Lesotho where I am studying. This, as I plan, will be a club of young people, male and female. I aim at making it a youth club of talent development. It will take sports, music,life skills and career guidance fields.

I think bringing young men and women together into fellowship is a solution of women being subject and their violation. In my languge, Sesotho, they say " Thupa e otlolloa e le metsi"... meaning you only straighten a stick before it dries or else it breaks. If man and woman can fellowship from their early stage, there is no denying fact that they are friends forever.

Your idea
What stage is your project in?

Idea phase

When was the project initiated? or When are you planning to begin?

I am planning to begin it by January 2011.

What kind of beneficiaries is your initiative addressed to?

Youth.

Describe the profile of the beneficiaries of this project

My project is aimed at catering for at least 1500 youth. Neverthless, I aim at growing it till it is global, not only functionning at tertiary institutions, but from lower up many social groups like churches. Even in churches we need to develop fellowship.

What is your initiative’s implementation strategy?

I suggest creating an online network where I would invite the youth at the university. If it has grown well enough the I would buy a domain which would internationalise the network.

It shall be advertised in many media fields, TV, radio, newspapaers and magazines.

But before all I aim at applying for sponsorship from NGO's so as to begin the project because I aim at having some sports competitions, music and talent shows and youth seminars to enhance love and passion of the youth.

In your opinion, what are the main barriers or obstacles in connection with this theme?

It might be quite very difficult to get sponsorship due to the economic status of Lesotho. Again, it is going to be challenging dealing with people who have lived for at least a decade in a world of woman violation and retrim their minds.

What type of partnerships you have or intend to generate strategic alliances with for the development of this initiative? Choose all that apply

International organizations, Non-Government organizations, Private companies, Social organizations, Universities, Schools.

Describe with whom you have generated these alliances and how

1)With International organizations: I think the Red Cross can help in life skills development.
2)NGO's and Private companies: Vodacom Lesotho,Bam Promotions Lesotho shall help in financial sponsorship for running the club and events.
3)Social organizations, Universities and Schools: Churches and all educational institutions are good places to find youth. It is all about convincing youth about their time schedule.

What are the main results generated and/or expected to generate by means of this initiative?

I foresee a very big well managed movement which shall be of mature international standards even financially from this initiative.

What is the main impact that your initiative might generate?

The initiative might bring a great progress even globally to diffuse the whole perspective of man vs woman.
