How does your idea help young people create bright futures and improve opportunities for meaningful and long-term careers?
At Community Development Trust in Zimbabwe, our goal is to capacitate youth in the local communities for their total empowerment so that they positively develop a wealth Zimbabwe. This is through offering skills development and entrepreneurship programs to meet the demands of the 21st era. Our idea is that, to sustainably address the challenges posed by unemployment, it is necessary to fully integrate the non-formal into the mainstream of the economy to ensure a broad-based inclusive growth strategy. This can be achieved by offering skills development and entrepreneurship skills to uplift the youths thereby creating self-reliant development.
