Muslim youth appointed Malawi’s Global Youth Ambassador
World at School, a grouping aimed at promoting education of children across the globe has appointed one of Malawi’s Muslim youth entrepreneurs as the country’s Global Youth Ambassador.
According to information sourced by Radio Islam, Marshal Dyton who is also Chief Executive Officer for Freelance Web Solution has been appointed to bring to the attention 59 million children around the world currently being denied the right to education.
The Global Youth Ambassador group was launched in 2014 by United Nation Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon and United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown.
Reacting to the development, Dyton said he is delighted to join the world in advocating for millions of children who are denied their right to education due to many factors such as poverty, early marriages, child labour and different forms of discriminations.
“However I ask the Muslim youth not to look down upon themselves and take part in socio-economic development of Malawi,” advised Dyton.
Dyton was also among 8 Malawian youths who participated in this year’s Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders in United States of America.
