Youth for Peace in Zimbabwe and the dream of a welcoming society to the poor and the elderly

 
printable version

These days in Zimbabwe, hundreds of young people gathered together with the Community of Sant'Egidio in Harare, the capital, and Mutare in the eastern province of Manicaland, to consider the future of their country and to reaffirm their determination to spread a culture of peace and build a non-violent society.

During the meetings, the youth pointed to the need to protect the elderly, often alone, because the family emigrated in search of work to other African countries. "Society ends up being violent with the elderly -said Lesly, of the Youth for Peace in Harare – it leaves them alone in their difficulty in finding food and medicine. Their children work abroad. We become their children".

Currently Zimbabwe is suffering from a massive emigration of its inhabitants: about a third of the population has in fact migrated to neighbouring countries in search of a job. The meetings with the young people have registered an opposite trend, as they show a generation of teenagers and young adults that want to remain in their own country, with the dream of changing it for the good of all, especially the poor.
