Youth Entrepreneurship Development
Our goal is to create young entrepreneurs by helping them first to establish their own sales and distribution businesses. During the following nine months of mentorship, they are empowered and encouraged to develop and save up for their own business ventures.
Our activities include research, training and mentoring to prepare these young people for the business world. By equipping them with the character traits, life skills, basic business skills and continued mentoring, we aim to see them start and maintain their own successful small businesses.
The Project also provides wonderful opportunities for local businesses to offer internships to these enthusiastic, newly trained young people. Here, they can put in into practice what they have learned and gain some work experience. We would also hope that some will prove to be indispensible and so find permanent employment.
