Another Message of Support from The Commonwealth
Message from Her Majesty the Queen of Lesotho
Queen Masenate Bereng Seeiso:
“It gives me great pleasure to announce my support of the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust’s noble initiative of the launch of the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme.
We congratulate and laud Her Majesty for her continued support and magnanimity towards the self-betterment and development of the Commonwealth Youth. Young people everywhere, but in particular for this case from the Commonwealth countries, are undergoing a diversity of challenges but at the same time have demonstrated remarkable resilience, creativity and admirable innovativeness.
It is with this in mind that we are particularly proud of Her Majesty’s pioneering spirit, born of her great generosity and passion to see the youth becoming responsible custodians of the future that we now have the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme. This is not only a great source of inspiration for the youth of the Commonwealth but its significance lies in its inherent ability to mentor, equip with skills, afford them a unique opportunity to network and exchange ideas. All these attributes are confidence building blocks which shall make it easier and more achievable for the youth to reach their full potential in life.
I therefore strongly urge and encourage Lesotho youth to participate fully in this programme and nominate a potential young leader who will compete with other youth from across the Commonwealth, and I offer my full support to all those Basotho who will participate; indeed, I look forward to meeting them and learning from them about their progress.“
