I stand the gap of a group of youths, youths in prisons and on the streets due to delinquent and radical behaviours. I look at the long life ahead of these young people who have been abandoned and stand the gap for them for their transformation into morally upright citizens, peer educators and development partners. Millions are at risk of joining them in this attitude and if interventions are not put in place, the world and their world will become chaotic and disastrous.
The ongoing Anglophone Cameroon crises has led to school dropouts, the radicalization of youths, high crime waves and worst of all, fear in the communities due to these group of youths. Any development that does not consider their wellbeing is at risk to fail. For effective development at all dimensions, this group of youths must be included and they cannot be effectively included without moral transformation through psycho-social counselling and therapies which my organisation's (Cornerstone Enrichment Services -CES) services offer.
Standing the gap for these youths will go a long way to positively impact the lives of these youths themselves, their peers, families and the community at large which will live without fear. Transforming these youths especially in the Anglophone Cameroon context is very primordial for any peace, economic and social development ventures.
A post pandemic future will be best when the challenges of this group of youths are well addressed because youths make the highest population of every community.
