Challenge

In Zimbabwe, economic challenges have seen youth unemployment rates rise and many youths relegated to the informal sector. School curricula fails to nurture the human potential necessary to aid to the advancement of the country's economy. For young people to actively participate in Zimbabwe's economy, they must have training to critically analyse and solve business problems in their communities. Nonetheless, financial constraints restrict access to such training for many rural schools.

Solution

This project will enable 200 learners from marginalised rural schools to gain access to business training. Over a period of 6 months, these learners will have access to global and local mentors and be provided with a platform to debate, analyze, and articulately present integrated business solutions to real world economic challenges in Zimbabwe, to a panel of industry leaders. Learners will be empowered to implement their business solutions in their communities while generating income.

Long-Term Impact

Learners will develop critical thinking, problem solving and entrepreneurial skills necessary for creating business solutions to pressing challenges within their rural communities. Seed funding and global mentorship will be provided to ensure that business solutions are realized. Learners will also be provided with opportunities to shadow business leaders in various industries to get hands on experience.
