“We also want to hear from our young people. Your voice matters, we must hear you but must build and act together. Our efforts where not built overnight and our approach is collaboration driven by leadership insights. These are the values and characteristics we seek in partnerships and leadership for change.
“Young people, please remember that it is not the responsibility of this bursary, NIMT or anyone to make your life a success, despite these commitments being made. Our role as private sector and Government is to provide enabling environments such as these to assist you in realising and releasing your potential. Your contribution is discipline, hard work and commitment to yourself to succeed in your programme,” she said.
