What comes to your mind when you see an article like this? #FirstClassBetrayal: First class graduate lives on the streets. He has applied for many jobs in vain There are so many cases of university students getting into depression because of too much preasure to meet expectations. This starts when the students realises that the course they are pursuing might not help them in future. This made us mobilise students who are transiting from secondary school to institutions of higher learning to give them guidance on how to choose the right course for the desired career and the process and proceedure for placement to universities and other tertiary institutions. Kongoni Community Library is partnering with recognised and profesional institutions with comprehensive and development programs designed to assist individuals in making and implementing informed educational and occupational choices. Such institutions include YATA(You Are The Answer) We hosted the first group and we are planning to extent to schools and also have similar forums every year.

Through our interractions with our community and schools, we have realised that there is a need for our youth to be taken through Guidance and Counseling forums. Covid-19 pandemic has escaleted the challenges our youth are going through on the family level. Most students are facing various challenges such as early pregnancies, drug abuse, and poverty that is leading to theft among them. Kongoni Community Library is organising forums for youth and schools to be taken through the process of G&C with experts in this field.

Students have a problem to identify a person they can reach out to in order to express their frustrations. Therefore they need a safer space. That is why at Kongoni Community Library, we feel it is important to empower our teachers and schools with the capacity to find a place for our students to speak out and express what they are going through. Can our teachers be the first mentors to our students? As much as teachers are the front liners who are supposed to be guiding the students on how to live harmoniously with one another, they are equally facing some challenges. Therefore it becomes a problem for them to be effective in line of their duty. We have identified the following areas the teachers need to be assisted with knowledge on how to manage: Parenting: We have absentee parents, most of the learners are staying with their grandparents, and early preganancies among girls. Most of our learners are sexually active thus leading to diseases related to sex such as STI. There are challenges in adolescent, and the correct language to be used to pupils who are sexually active. Boy child has both sexual and drug abuse G&C teachers to be empowered by being given the correct knowledge How to constitute G&C and how it should be done Teachers should be guided and counselled
