Two youth groups, the Humble Family and the Diamond Sisters of Lamin Village in the Kombo North District, on Saturday, converged at Lamin Health Centre on a cleansing exercise.
The youth groups who are drawn from various parts of the village, were filled with the spirit and determination to venture into developmental activities in line with their objectives to complement the government’s efforts.
Speaking at the cleansing exercise, Paramount Chief Alhaji Demba Sanyang hailed the youths for the initiative and promised to work hand-in-glove with them.
He finally urged the youths to keep up the momentum as they have a very important role to play in the development of the country.
Tamsir Jallow, the president of Humble Family, said the aim of the two clubs is to unify and to strengthen understanding within their membership and within the community as a whole.
According to him, they have started with the health centre, but plans are in the offing to venture into other developmental sectors.
Awa Jobe, the president of the Diamond Sisters and Fatou Luis Darboe, the club’s auditor, both expressed similar sentiments. They all commended the paramount chief and Mbemba Bojang, the Alkalo of Lamin, for their support.
Alaklo Mbemba Bojang buttressed the comments of the paramount chief.
Fabakary Manneh, the councillor for Lamin Ward, concurred with the previous speakers.
