Rebranded Youth and Community Development Organisation (YouthCode) has reaffirmed its commitment to promoting the welfare of youths and women.
YouthCode executive director Robert M’baya said this yesterday at a news conference in Nkhotakota where the organisation unveiled its new name.
He observed that the organisation has equiped youths with vocational training skills and pushed for youth inclusion in local governance structures.
Said M’baya: “The new name will give the organisation an opportunity to expand its work and scope as we strive to serve the youth, women and children better.”
Meanwhile, the organisation is running an exchange programme with partners based in Norway and Uganda.
In her remarks, Norwegian delegation leader Frida Ur said since the inception of the partnership in 2006, the three countries have benefited from each other.
“We have benefited from each other through cultural exchange and skills transfer and we are looking forward to strengthening it for the benefit of the people,” she said.
Established in 1997, the organisation‘s objectives have included bringing inclusive development to communities in Nkhotakota with a focus on HIV and Aids among the youth.
