Youth arise for Peace building

A one day student leader’s programme on the theme ‘Youth Arise for Peace Building’, organized by Peace Channel was held on June 28 at Christ Hall in Holy Cross Campus, Dimapur, where 51 representatives of peace clubs from different schools of Dimapur attended the programme.
Rev. Fr. Alex Pulimoottil SDB, Rector, Salesian College, Dimapur, while addressing the programme as chief guest said that peace arises from within and that one needs to find inner peace in order to spread peace around.
Further, he asked the students which footsteps they followed- of drugs, pleasure, violence or peace and harmony-the future of the society lies in the right decisions of the youth of today. He also exhorted the students that as peace club leaders they should be examples to the society around.
In the subsequent interactive session that was facilitated by Fr. C.P. Anto, Director, Peace Channel, the topic – The Need of Peace Builders- was deliberated on.
During the process the pledge to abstain from sex till marriage and from drugs through life was taken by the participants.
Later, regrouping according to institutions, the participants discussed and formulated a plan of action in the respective schools and clubs to be undertaken in the coming months.
Visiting of orphanages, poor neighbourhoods, individual help to weaker students, contribution to the peace club activities and quarterly meetings were some of the activities planned by the group.
The programme ended with the mass peace pledge taken by the participants while the vote of thanks was delivered by Sr. Irene Nzanbeni.
