DILI, 10 november 2020 (TATOLI)— Government’s Ministry of Education Youth and Sport has planned on forming the Timorese youth into a resilient committee to be ready to deal with various problems in life.

“The youth are the authors for the progression of a resilient society; this means the youth must be ready to face various obstacles. For 2021 the Ministry of Education has set the political direction to prepare better conditions for youth to deal with the problems,” Minister of Education, Armindo Maia told the journalists at the National Seminar “Youth is the author to building a resilient society” during preparations for the commemoration of the Santa Cruz Massacre at Delta Novo Dili.

The Ministry of Education will improve the conditions of necessary infrastructure throughout 2021, particularly constructions and rehabilitations to 221 schools which amount to 1500 classrooms as well as providing training for teachers to guarantee a quality education to the younger generation.

“In our time, when we were very young we got jobs after we finished high schools, back then we were only a small number of students and the education system prepared us to get the jobs. But today it is difficult to find jobs because there are many people, many competitors and for such reason, it is now a requirement of the youth today to prepare themselves to become better to ensure they stand out” Minister Maia said.

The commemoration of the 29th year of Santa Crus Massacre, 1991-2020 and the commemoration of the 25th National Youth Day, Minister Maia said, it is a responsibility of the individuals and not just that of the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the National Youth Council of Timor-Leste.
