 The YPFDJ- Dallas Chapter successfully completed the Southern
Regional workshop on February 28th, 2009.
The youth of both Dallas and Houston were in attendance asking questions and
ready to learn more about the emerging growth of YPFDJ worldwide and
specifically in the Southern Region.
The workshop commenced with an introduction from the Dallas chapter
presenting the achievements and growth they have had since the outset of
their chapter in October of 2008. The Houston group shared how
motivated they were to organize and create a stronger movement in their own
city; and both groups hope to collaborate to create strong ties within the
neighboring cities.
The event gave members an overall perspective of the mission and vision of
YPFDJ which is to build "niQHAT' or awareness amongst the Eritrean youth in
the Diaspora. Taking into account that a problem facing many of the Eritrean
youth is a lack consciousness & awareness, it became an objective that both
chapters would like to tackle in their communities. The aspirations of the
YPFDJ movement were clearly defined and the goals reestablished the drive of
all the members present who donate their time and skills to organize the
youth and foster their Eritrean identities. The workshop not only
highlighted the increasing growth of YPFDJ worldwide, but also gave members
an overall viewpoint of the organizationís development and structure. The
closing of the workshop brought forth a downpour of entertainment along
with an array of food, intellectual discussion, and ended with a night
of guayla where members proudly danced while elevating the flag to glory in
a symbolic gesture. Overall, the workshop was a great bonding experience for
both Dallas and Houston and ensured the development and growth from two of
the major cities in the state of *TEXAS*!

YPFDJ-Dallas would like to extend their gratitude to all those who worked
hard to make this workshop a tremendous success.
