Youth Empowerment

Youth Empowerment

(Empowered to Change)

Zimbabwean youth are regarded as one of the poorest youth groups in the world (ILO, 2016), mostly as a result of unemployment and limited resources to allow them to contribute and participate fully economically.

The lack of sustainable youth led programming has witnessed the failure of several initiatives to successfully achieve their intended impact.  As a result, some development models have been incongruous towards the cause and have not met the envisioned outcome.

Having seen the need for intervention, Harambe Trust has initiated 21st century programs to curb socio-economic issues that affect the youth. The participatory engagement of Youth in self-sustainable economic programs is significant for the strengthening of skills development systems, food security, employability and increased income for comprehensive and sustainable growth among Zimbabwean youth, strengthening their contribution to the development of their community and the country.
