    Regional Centre for Guidance, Counselling and Youth Development for Africa

    The participating countries and UNESCO are committed to working together towards the establishment of a Regional Centre for Guidance, Counselling and Youth Development for Africa. UNESCO has approved the establishment of the Centre in Lilongwe, Malawi has mobilized funds for its construction. In 1998 the architectural plan was designed and approved by the Office of the Urban Planning in Malawi and in 1999 City Building Constructors Limited of Blantyre was selected to ondidate this work from among several candidates in Malawi. The construction of the Centre began in February 2000 and is expected to continue until 2001. Meanwhile, two officials work within an Interim Centre for Guidance, Counselling and Youth in Lilongwe.

    The Centre will be an academic training Centre. It will train tutors, teachers and social workers to help young people know more about entrepreneurship and civic development, promote creativity and learn how to find sources of raw materials for small scale enterprises in their leisure time and create their own entertainment.

    Your contribution to, and support for, the establishment of this Centre will bring African young people, particularly girls, closer to realizing their full potential and contribute more effectively to development.
