Hello! I find that people of the Eritrean community in America need to start contributing to different associations that are going to benefit and educate the people of our country. Starting with the youth and 2nd generation. I am 15 years old myself and have no idea what to contribute to. It's a sense of helplessness when the people of our age are too old to do the childish programs and too young for adult responsibilities. Forming groups the fundraise in their community, put gatherings together to get other people's input, and coming to fetcher to create plans based on our present political and economic issues will help us all. States all over have Eritrean Community Centers that are not even used.. We need to work on that . And make everyone more active and motivated as they were 10 years ago. I have many Ideas that I would like to share and would love to come together with adults of this organization to make a plan.
