‘’I have learnt the hard way that only by giving young people genuine opportunity to express themselves can help them grow emotionally, intellectually and socially ”
I wrote the quote above in 2012 before the establishment of my former Youth organisation in due to my own life experience and I would love to continue pass it on to youth through an active lifestyle.
My last name ‘’Giraneza’’ is a kirundi/kinyarwanda word meaning ‘’Do well’’ this is my philanthropic endeavor and Habnab as whole. The main objective is to create more effective young leaders within our community through active lifestyle in Burundi. It all starts with their contribution to society.
We all know young people are busy working out who they are and where they fit in the world. They try out different identities, experiment with different styles of dress and might try out a range of different activities and hobbies. Getting involved in local community activities or volunteering can boost teenagers’ confidence and self-esteem and help them build new skills.
One can think of a healthy mind only in a healthy body. Both physical and mental well being are the prerequisites of great achievements in everyone’s life.
It doesn’t matter what teenagers do. Any involvement is good! When you get involved in community activities, you get a lot of personal rewards and feelings of achievement
