International Youth Day 2020
MESSAGE

Each year, on August 12, Guyana joins the United Nations and its 193 member states in observance of International Youth Day (IYD), which aims at celebrating and furthering the contributions of young people worldwide. This day was first endorsed by the UN General Assembly in the year 1999, following recommendations made at the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth. This year’s theme, “Youth Engagement for Global Action”, focuses on the need for youth involvement and engagement within the global policymaking framework.

Young people here in Guyana and around the world are not just the future but must shape the future. The reality is that world has changed, and the pace of change will only accelerate as human civilization advances. That reality is being driven mostly by young people who simply want a better way of life, a better world, and a better future. These changes present immense opportunities, but it will also present significant challenges which are not isolated to young people; it is a challenge for humanity and civilization as we know it. Over the course of human history, however, solutions to challenges have always been found through our collective engagement. It is for this reason that youth engagement for global action is not only important, it is critical.

Guyana, like many other developing countries in the world, has over 60% of its population below the age of 35. This is an enormous resource for a country rich with natural resources. Harnessing these resources for the benefit of all Guyanese is a top priority for Guyana and simultaneously becomes a benefit for the world. Young people have once again have taken the lead roles in driving change in Guyana and finding the solutions to the consequential challenges. This is something we are proud of and should be proud of.

Recently, Guyana overcame a grave threat to our democratic foundation. This fight was led by young national leaders and manifestly demonstrated the infinite possibilities of collective engagement and collective action. We are happy to be a part of this Global Action.

Ms. Ann Montrose is a phenomenal young woman with a zeal and passion for children and youths. She is the holder of an Associate Degree in Education from the Cyril Potter College of Education (CPCE). There, she graduated with Credit, majoring in Business Studies and minor in Mathematics.

In 2013, Ms. Montrose was appointed as an Assistant Mistress at Golden Grove Primary, Secondary Department.

YOUTH OF THE DAY- Today we celebrate the achievements of Ms. Rachel Fraser.

Ms. Rachel Fraser is a talented and dedicated 25-year-old resident of Sera Lodge Stewartville, West Coast Demerara. She is the holder of a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations from the University of Guyana and is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Law. Throughout her University years, Ms. Fraser has been actively involved in the Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship (ISIVCF) serving to influence and impact young people. In 2017, she became a member of WIST Dance Ministries International.

Despite her packed academic, social and religious schedule, she took on the responsibility as the Leader of the Charity Committee at WIST Ministries International in 2018. She was elected for this position, having been recognised for her compassion as well as her love for people and service.

As leader of the WIST Charity Committee she is responsible for leading a team of 11 young people in planning, organising and executing projects that would benefit children, youths and adults in needy communities, schools and organisations. These projects include donations; food, blood and back-to-school drives, etc.

Most events require planning, budgeting, procuring, packaging, and delivering supplies to those in need. All of these areas are covered by the members of the Charity Team who are eager to heed the direction of Ms. Fraser – an incredibly intelligent, capable and compassionate young woman who never fails to keep the people at the heart of every project. She has an eye for detail and usually goes above and beyond to ensure the needs of the people are met and that their lives are touched and transformed in some way or the other.

These projects are solely created by the leader and members of the WIST Charity team. Ms. Fraser has chartered the way in recognizing needs and finding ways of addressing the gaps in society, especially as it relates to young people. Her service has also touched the very lives of the young people she partners with on the Charity committee at WIST.

Today, we salute and celebrate Ms. Rachel Fraser for her remarkable contributions towards making Guyana a better place.

From the Director

During an interview with the Department of Public Information(DPI), the Youth Director emphasised that this year (2018) her department wants to ensure it works “with all agencies and ministries as it relates to the development of our young people because we all know youth work cannot be done with just one ministry or one agency. This year we want to foster stronger partnerships,” Carmichael-Haynes said.
