Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Youth And Business

Entrepreneurship is one of those ventures that are ensuring that the youth are not staying idle and poor in the slums if as many youth as possible can be empowered to own and open their own business then the unemployment rate will crash down. Goldmine foundation is on the front-line to help the youth in going into business. Through their entrepreneurship program the organisation has been able to educate the youth on business and then link them to prospective people who are interested in investing in their business ventures.
