As a youth network it is our belief that our youths need to take a united stand for their own future as key stakeholders in nation building, not through violent protests and rallies, but by taking responsibility to develop ourselves within our capacity and follow up by making educated demands from our leaders that we have the capacity to maintain - this we ultimately intend to achieve through the Visionaries Hub Hangout Initiative.
