The Seventh Day Adventist church (SDA) of St Louis has adopted a small vacant area at the Olivier Housing Estate, Belonie which will be turned into a playground for the children living there.
The adoption of the area was to celebrate Global Youth Day, observed by SDA youths worldwide.
After a praise and worship session and the area had been adopted, some residents of the housing estate joined the youths from SDA and from the St Louis district to conduct general cleaning of the area designated for the playground and also around the housing estate.
The purpose of this adoption initiative is to continue serving the community, promoting a healthy lifestyle and building strong communities.
It also serves as a catalyst to motivate and encourage young people to cultivate a spirit of volunteerism, respect, hard work and service to their community.
Present for the adoption and voluntary work at the Olivier Housing Estate were the principal secretary for Youth and Sports, Fabien Palmyre, St Louis district administrator Rachel Joseph, the chief executive of the Property Management Company (PMC) Evelina Antha, the president Seychelles mission of Seventh Day Adventist (SDA), Pastor Enworth Baxen, youths and other members of SDA and also some residents.
According to Pastor Abel Ntep from SDA, SDA’s youth ministry will seek sponsorship for the playing equipment for the fenced playground and alongside the residents, will maintain the playground.
He hopes that the playground will be fully equipped and ready by the middle of the year. For the time being the children can make use of the vacant lot for recreational activities.
Pastor Ntep also confirmed that SDA will conduct voluntary work at the estate on a monthly basis in partnership with the residents and the St Louis district administration. This, he said, will get the community to take ownership of its own assets.
He noted that SDA will also organise activities for both children and parents so as to bring the residents closer together which will be for the benefit of the children growing up.
Micheal Morel, a resident who was giving a helping hand, said the adoption of the playground was a good initiative taken by the SDA youth ministry and now his six- year-old daughter can have a safe place to play with her friends.
He said if he is free from other duties he will give a helping hand to clean the estate whenever such activity arises.
Mrs Joseph said that the DA’s office appreciates the initiative taken by the SDA youth ministry to adopt the play area and cleaning exercise and urged the residents to use the facility wisely when operational and to give the youths a helping hand in maintaining the playground and cleaning exercises.
Ms Antha said PMC welcomes such initiative that promotes togetherness on housing estates while Pastor Baxen said the adoption and voluntary project, to celebrate GYD, is to show the residents that other people care for them.
PS Palmyre said the initiative taken by the SDA youth ministry in collaboration with the St Louis district demonstrates the spirit of volunteerism among the youths and he was very happy to see the participation of very young children also.
“Children learn by example and not necessarily by what you tell them,” Mr Palmyre said as he urged other residents who were still in their homes at the time to come out and share a little volunteerism as a sign of motivation to the children present.
GYB is a day of awareness and sensitisation for SDA youths all over the world. The day gives the youths a chance to reflect on their lives and on the reality of other young people thus taking decisive actions to give, share and to help others through acts of kindness. The GYD started in 2013 and since, thousands of Adventist youths worldwide have observed and participated actively in this annual youth initiative.

A newly built housing estate at St Louis was officially opened on Saturday.
It was President Danny Faure and the Minister for Habitat, Infrastructure and Land Transport (MHILT) Pamela Charlette who officially inaugurated the Oliver Housing Estate.
Also present were the MNA for St Louis Sandy Arrisol, principal secretary for infrastructure Yves Choppy, principal secretary for housing Denis Barbe, principal secretary for local government Marine-Celine Vidot, district administrator for St Louis Rachel Joseph among other invited guests as well as the new tenants.
The estate forms part of the government's initiative to provide 24 houses in 25 districts in 24 months, which was announced in 2016 and which was to be completed by February 2019.
Since construction on the Oliver Housing Estate recently completed this month, St Louis joins the few other districts which have met the scheduled completion deadline.
It is also the first housing project to have been allocated using the land points system.
The estate comprises five block of 36 units of which 12 are three-bedroom units and 24 are two-bedroom units.
It has been named after the previous owner of the land, Therese Oliver, who transferred the land to the government in 2005 following lengthy discussions.
But it was only in November 2015 that Allied Builders were awarded the contract for the housing project which the construction company was initially expected to complete by March 2018.
During her keynote address, Minister Charlette stated that the Oliver Housing Estate is one of the greatest accomplishments under the 24 houses in 25 districts in 24 months initiative.
She noted that there are 200 housing applicants in St Louis of which 128 are actively contributing to their future homes while 81 applicants are not.
Minister Charlette also gave an overview of the application process which she described as lengthy, intense and emotional.
“It is the first project that allocation was made using the land point system which proritises applicants according to their needs and merit,” Minister Charlette explained.
“Various meetings with applicants were organised and visits were conducted when necessary with the district committee to assess the housing situation of these applicants.”
In this same allocation, her ministry also took the opportunity to address the needs of a few large families who had been residing in bedsitters for more than 12 years.
“This is an opportunity for these families to better cater for their children and create a better environment that will help them flourish [...],” Minister Charlette provided.
A house that caters to the needs of a family, Minister Charlette continued, encourages children to perform better at school and parents to become more productive at work hence contributing to the country’s progress.
Nonetheless, Minister Charlette strongly emphasised on the need for the tenants to be responsible and to honour their agreements with the Property Management Company (PMC).
She asked that the tenants transform their new houses into homes where peace, respect and harmony prevail and become an exemplary community in their district.
Tenants were also requested to ensure their housing payments are made on time.
“I want to highlight that the ministry, through its housing policy of 2018, will not tolerate anti-social activities on this estate,” Minister Charlette stressed.
“This agreement signed with PMC is one which is valid and this agency has the right to undertake any necessary measures with residents who break this agreement, hence I implore you all to avoid actions that could cost you your homes.”
One of the new tenants, Marlene Saunders, also echoed out the same sentiments stating that a house is an investment and that the residents of Oliver Housing Estate should persevere to live in harmony and be exemplary neighbours.
The estate was blessed by Anglican Priest, Reverend Daniel Kalle, after which President Faure and other officials were led on a tour of some of the new homes.
The opening ceremony also included entertainments such as performances by the Belonie School choir, MHILT choir and a visit from Father Christmas for the children of the estate.
St Louis expects to benefit from another stock of government housing in the coming years.
