Summary

Youth Empowerment Trust and its development partners believe that youths' unemployment is one of the three greatest threats (along with corruption and poor governance) to the countries stability and growth. Thus, youth empowerment becomes the bedrock to shun and diffuse these time bombs. It is upon this background that YET has come up with the programme on youth skills development and training in Kuwadzana.

Challenge

Youth Empowerment Trust and its development partners believe that youths' unemployment, is one of the three greatest threats (along with corruption and poor governance) to the countries stability and growth. Thus, youth empowerment becomes the bedrock to shun and diffuse these time bombs. It is upon this background that YET has come up with the programme on youth skills development and training. Apart from these HIV/AIDS drug abuse and early marriages are some of the challenges faced by youths.

Solution

The Trust runs 'all round' youth empowerment programmes which include technical skills courses namely Welding, Dressmaking and Interior decor and a number of non-technical skills activities such as life skills, leadership, Sexual and health education, sports and theater, peer education and other activities as may be seen necessary. There are plans to start implementing new courses on Motor Mechanics, Hair Dressing, Nurse Aid, Early Childhood Development and computer training.

Long-Term Impact

Through training of unemployed youths and development of small scale projects, communities will be set on a development drive, at communal level; and these youths will be wined or liberated from dependency syndrome and become economically active thereby contributing to the development of their communities instead of being lifetime liabilities to their communities. 165 youth will run livelihoods and 920 will be assertive and spearhead community development.
