Celebrated every March 12th, this annual holiday "recognizes that youth are the future leaders." See what happened when Shelbe Van Winkle, modzi's Northeastern University co-op, asked kids in the community about this special day.
Youth day is celebrated throughout the country with parades, organized youth activities, and special events for young people. With half of the country’s population being under the age of 16, youth are an integral part of daily life in Zambia. modzi supports and encourages our students’ involvement in community activities and leadership roles, as we recognize the importance of their participation in society. We work to build children’s confidence through community involvement, and Zambian Youth Day shares our value of empowering youth to effect positive change.
