For this coming months– there is a lot of events that you wouldn’t want to miss out on and one of them is the Race on Action Against Poverty…. FRIEND Youth Development Program has designed the Race Against poverty with the aim to gain knowledge and be aware of the Millennium Development Goals. The Race which is similar to the Amazing Race, here on a local scale takes the youths on an outside workshop where they tackle questions, quizzes and challenges on poverty, youth issues and MDG’s on a Race through the wilderness. The venue being FRIEND’s office in Tuvu gives a great cross country race where running will be conducted on mountains, over creeks, into the bushes and down mud tracks. Youths who will be at the Race in Tuvu come from business houses, faith groups, high schools, women in communities, community youths, non government youths groups. The Race has been a highlight in the youth development program and has been in continuity since 2006.
