PRESS RELEASE People's National Congress Reform Congress Place, Sophia, Georgetown, Guyana. Tuesday, January 24, 2006




Well over one hundred young people from various religious denominations and organisations, and organised by the Linden Youth Forum, met at the Constabulary Recreation Hall at Linden on Saturday, January 21, 2006 for the First Quarterly Prayer Breakfast of the Forum for this year.

Specially invited guests of honour were the Leader of the People's National Congress Reform, Mr. Robert H.O. Corbin and his wife, Carol.

Chairperson for the activity was Ms. Niocie Browne, member of the Guyana Youth and Student Movement (GYSM), Linden.

The programme included a rich cultural presentation by members of the Forum as well as a Sermonette delivered by one of the youth leaders, Mr. Denton Osbourne.

Special prayers were offered by the young people for the Party Leader, other persons in authority in our country, the youth of Guyana and the Nation as a whole as it approaches a very sensitive period in the run up to the 2006 National Elections. Those offering prayers included Vanessa Kissoon, Chairman of the GYSM of Linden, Derick Morgan of Mount Caramel Assembly of God Church, Edgar Henry of Mount Caramel Assembly of God Church and Pastor Renis Morian of the Fruits of Calvary Assembly of God Church.

Invited to deliver a brief address to the young people, Mr. Corbin spoke about the PNCR’s vision for the youth of Guyana as a whole and of Linden in particular. He also responded to questions on important issues raised by the youth, including the need for more job opportunities in Linden and the need to deal with the AIDS epidemic in a manner that takes into account the particular perspective of the young people.

On the question of jobs, Mr. Corbin noted that in order to create jobs in Linden, the Linden Economic Advancement Programme (LEAP) will have to be totally revamped.
