On 1st April 2016 ELA's youth organized ELA's Caravan. Its purpose was to show the whole Mzuzu town how ELA has been trying to uplift Mzuzu youth.
They were showcasing their talents (they sang ELA's official songs they recorded in studios, danced traditional and modern dances, presented acrobatic moves, Taekwondo team performed).
They were also spreading messages that YOUTH is the SOLUTION and NOT THE PROBLEM. That Politicians/business people/organisations/religious leaders should not abuse youth in order to achieve their agendas.
Although many youth can not afford school fees that does not mean, they have nothing to do. Each of them has amazing talent.We teach them how to positively and productively actualize them and be responsible citizens who do not involve themselves in illicit behavior (drinking, taking drugs, womanizing, immoral sexual behaviors).
On the day of the ELA's Caravan ELA's youth presented the petition in which they described problems they are faced with, spoke of solutions to them, talked about their desired and what government can do for them in order for their lives to improve.
