Opening ceremony of preliminary on-job training for volunteer youths to take part in the Union Enterprises for Humanitarian Assistance, Resettlement and Development—UEHRD process was held at the Women’s Development Centre in Than Lwin Street, Kamayut Township in Yangon yesterday morning. At the ceremony, Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr. Win Myat Aye, Vice-President of UEHRD, and Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein gave welcoming addresses.
“The UEHRD is an all-inclusive project which will be implemented with the strength of the people. The UEHRD has three main goals — resettlement and development, freedom from conflicts including provision of humanitarian aid for all people living in Rakhine State suffering greatly due to the conflicts which took places in Rakhine State. In implementing the project with the cooperation of the people, the provision of humanitarian aid will be performed by our youths. Youths possess great prospects, by which they must take responsibilities for national peace and stability.
So the government must take the responsibility of laying down strategic directives for fulfilling the aspirations of youths with social, political, educational, cultural and developmental prospects for the future”, the Union Minister said.
“After the terrorist attacks, humanitarian assistance is being provided in many ways. For more effectiveness, the UEHRD will continue to be operate. Preliminary on-the-job training will be opened for volunteer youths to implement the project. The training opened today is a good chance for youths to take part in the democratic transitional process, also expressing the unity, love for the nation and the Union. During the administration of the incumbent government, we firmly hope that there will be good support for the programmes which will make efforts in bringing about means and ways to implement youth policy drawn up in democratic ways. The present project is not being launched for using youths for politics. The progress of democratic reforms is shown in the youth’s participation, stance and efficiency. The State Government is responsible for giving care to all the people residing in the nation, regardless of race, religion and their traditions. In doing so, we will try our best to give unbiased,equal support. We firmly hope that youths will make efforts to lift up their abilities by taking part in the campaign.”
Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein said the terrorist incidence in Rakhine threatened the unity of the country, which will now be repaired
“The affair of Rakhine nationals reached up to the stage of harming nationalism, national sovereignty and ownership of the land. Now the Union Government is bringing about the peace, stability and development of the nation. UEHRD is the all-inclusive project which will be implemented with the force of thepeople. In providing humanitarian aid to the conflict-affected people in the region, this is a chance for youths to show their abilities with firm determination. The opportunity to take part in the campaign is of great importance and will show the characteristics of our young people. The government is carrying out a programme for youths to take part in the campaign in helping people in trouble from the people living in peace. So, we humbly urge our people to co-operate with the government.”
The opening ceremony was attended by Dr. Aung Tun Thet, Chief Coordinator of the UEHRD, U Kyaw Myaing, Information and Communication Director, representatives from Rakhine national social societies, representatives from Yangon civil societies and invited guests. The first training course was attended by 83 trainees from Regions and States including Rakhine. One group comprised of 20 youths will travel and provide aid for 20 days, then another group will follow in turn. —Myanmar News Agency
