WYA President Featured in Manila University Paper

On January 29, 2013, the World Youth Alliance President, Obadias Ndaba was featured in The LaSallian, a school wide publication of De La Salle University Manila (DLSU).

During Mr. Ndaba’s five day tour to the Philippines, The LaSallian hosted Mr. Ndaba’s second school visit where over 80 people were present to hear him speak about the World Youth Alliance Mission and our advocacy on development. The audience was composed of students and young professionals who also showed further interest in our work as most signed the WYA charter after the talk.

The online article highlighted the call of Mr. Ndaba to invest on human capital development through enhancing education and basic health care. The LaSallian was able to capture the main message of our President as they stated "Beyond the stability of natural resources and a thriving market, Ndaba advocates that transcending the economic gap calls for not only an investment in human capital, but also the strengthening of good morals and central values towards a strong governing institution."

De La Salle University was one out of the three schools that Mr. Ndaba visited during his Manila tour. He was also able to give a presentation to Pamantasan Lungsod ng Marikina with the theme "Teachers: Molding Future Generations" and Philippine Science High school.

On January 25, 2013, Mr. Ndaba served as the guest speaker for the 1st DigniTea Party (General Assembly) for 2013. It was in this event that he was able to share his African culture and insights about Philippine values and lifestyle. Obadias even taught a traditional African Dance, a true delight for the audience.
