The government’s Aġenzija Żgħażagħ has invested €30,000 to renovate its Youth Cafe in Msida.
It will now be able to organise a number of skills programmes for young people. The Youth Cafe is equipped inter alia with audio and multimedia equipment and is accessible to people with disabilities. Thanks to this investment, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ this summer launched two programmes: Sound On and Take Action, which were designed for young people who wish to explore the world of radio and photography as media. In total, 86 young people were part of this programme.
Referring to this investment, which made it possible for Aġenzija Żgħażagħ to offer these programmes, Parliamentary Secretary for Sport, Recreation and Voluntary Organisations, Dr Clifton Grima said, “This is a clear and tangible example of how government is giving young people opportunities to develop and experience such initiatives that help them for their future.”
Young people who were part of this programme said that through this initiative they now have more confidence to use this equipment while learning what the production of radio programmes involves.
