Investing in youth through integrated skills training
Mozambique has long struggled to cope with youth unemployment. To address this issue, Young Africa (YA) launched a TVET programme for disadvantaged youth. Under the Young Africa franchise training system, local entrepreneurs practice their professions at the YA centres in Beira and Dondo, while at the same time supervising and training students who pay a small commitment fee. The local entrepreneurs rent from a YA workshop: space or land, classrooms, tools, equipment and the services of janitors and a receptionist. This income covers many of the centres’ costs. Students and local community members are supported in entrepreneurial efforts, which contribute to the local economy and extend far beyond the walls of its centres.
