Education Permanent Secretary, Lillian Kapulu says government will continue investing in education in its quest to develop excellent skills and moral uprightness among the young people.
Ms. Kapulu says this will enable the young people defend democratic ideals and accept the value of other persons on the basis of their personal worthy and dignity irrespective of gender religion and ethnic origin.
She said this at the official opening of a Christian leadership training workshop for emerging Christian leaders in Lusaka today.
She said there is also need for young leaders to be trained on the value of Christian leadership in areas such as integrity, planning and mentoring for them to achieve the great commission of reaching out to many with the word of God.
Ms. Kapulu further reiterated the country’s commitment to embrace Christian values adding that this will be the guiding principles in all its endeavors.
And speaking earlier, Citadel of Life Chairperson, Bishop Andrew Phiri said the church is determined to ensuring that it raises a new generation of leaders who will take over Gods works from the current leaders.
Bishop Phiri said Citadel of Life has partnered with other Christian organisations to groom the young people into better stewards of the word of God.
He said the organisation and its partners are targeting the young people between the age of 20 and 35 and are giving them skills to bridge the leadership gap.
