Ibrahim Hassen, Head of the 5th Eri-Youth Festival organizing committee

The 5th Eritrean Youth Festival will be held in Sawa from 13 to 15 July 2012. This festival is basically of the youths, but people from all walks of life have been part of it. The main objective of the youths gathering is to enable Eritrean youths throughout the country and also youths from abroad share experiences among each other. Every two years, in the summer time, it has been a gathering where youths demonstrate their talent in varied disciplines. It is simultaneously a give and take relationship which has been fostered among the youths.  Every youth could find some grand values to share and experiences to gain from Sawa’s festival. It is from this outlook that youths eagerly wait to be part of upcoming festival. In this festival, parents and other visitors get a chance to see what the potentials of the youths are and children get inspired of what the role model youths have accomplished and of the talents the youths have to offer them.  Below is an excerpt of the interview conducted with Mr. Ibrahim Hassen, NUEYS’ chairperson of holidays coordinating committee, in connection with the preparations that have been made to colorfully hold the 5th National Youth Festival
