Today two of MCF’s WITNESS Project youths in Guyana, Marcel Persaud and Danita Jaundoo, along with Program Director Rosheni Takechandra, went to visit Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana David Devine to interview him for the WITNESS Project weekly youth page. The youth are interviewing various people for articles they will publish in the up and coming weekly youth page in the Stabroek News. The youth page will include interviews, stories, observations, poems, artwork and photography all created by the WITNESS Project youths. MCF is really excited about the youth newspaper page opportunity that will give the youth a loud and public voice to express their ideas, thoughts, and feelings in a creative way, allowing them to get their message out about how violence is affecting them and empowering them to be a part of the solution.
