(elbcradio.com/Aug. 27, 2015)-The 2011 Noble Peace Prize Winner, Laymah Gbowee, wants young Africans pay keen attention to relevant issues, if the continent must be developed.

Ms. Gbowee says the youths must cultivate the spirit of voluntarism, a sense of philanthropy, good morals, love for humanity, and intellectual development for a better Africa.

A release from Ghana said the Liberian Peace Activist spoke Tuesday, August 25, 2015 when she addressed 100 young West Africans at the Accra Regional Leadership Center.

 The 100 young West Africans are currently undergoing training in Civic Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Public Sector Management.

The Noble Laureate said: “Voluntarism is an essential tool for nation building.”

Ms. Gbowee also wants African youths get greatly involved in community activities to accelerate the development of their areas.

She also encouraged the young people to share, not only materials and finances, but basic intellectual stills and knowledge needed for regional development.
