Young people need to be caught young while their missions are still fresh. Today LHM-Malawi have learnt several reasons why many youth, especially those between eleven and thirteen years, play almost all day out. We invited them to a meeting to find out from them why they play football from morning till late.
“I play to forget some problems I face at home.” Says William Chabwera.
While William is concerned with family problems, Yamikani Kadzakumanja says, “playing at this age helps youth to grow in football to a star.”
According to these young players, football games also help them to grow physically strong.
The simple interface with young soccer players made the LHM in Malawi to strategically uplift these talents and missions so that young dreams may be realized in future, given opportunities.
In the first place LHM will provide the young soccer team with a ball. Occasionally, the team suggested to conduct meetings where issues of behavior, cleanliness, education career talk, ministry mission, and football skills will be discussed.
Youth have potential talents and missions such that if they are given opportunities the youth will be good citizens at school, home and peer groups and help change the communities, not forgetting themselves.
