With the suicide endemic on the rise in the Phoenix area, a 23-year-old primary school teacher, Bradley O’Neal Munoo, saw it upon himself to do something about the situation.
Munoo decided to co-ordinate a youth empowerment conference, where a motivational talk will be given to the youth.
Crucial topics such as suicide will be addressed.
With inspiration, encouragement, involvement and change being the theme for the night, parents and youth are cheered on to attend.

“Being a youth myself, it really hit home when I see youth in my community dwindle on social ills,” Munoo, director of the youth empowerment project said.
“I hope that we can host this conference every six months to uplift. Being a teacher inspired me to take part of this initiative,” he added.
CJ Benjamin will be the keynote speaker with Jesse Govender SA’s Got Talent finalist entertaining the audience.
The one and a half hour event will take place at the AGAPE Community Fellowship at 147 Terence Park Drive, Trenance Manor in Phoenix on Friday, November 30 from 6:45pm.
“I am grateful to Pastor Tony Shamilla Haripersadh for giving his venue for this intiative,” the Phoenix resident said. For more information, contact Bradley O’Neal Munoo on 061-689-1069.
