We Believe Youth Are The Future

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”bottom-to-top”]

Taking an evidence-based and demand-driven approach, the development of Youth Connekt Zimbabwe is informed by youth needs as articulated by the youth themselves at the 2019 Youth Indaba. Needs include (but are not limited to): access to funds (ensuring that women have equal access); business incubation; access to markets; skills development; apprenticeships and work experience; bridging the digital divide; equal opportunities for women in the arts; information and networking; and the need to reach rural youth with youth-centred interventions.
