Working is a necessity for most young people. However, the youth unemployment rate in Cameroon and Africa increases month by month and year by year with the job market not being able to keep up with the fresh graduates The unemployed school dropouts are considered flames of a high crime wave, terrorism, drug addicts, prostitutes, and many other ill acts. Cameroon, Africa's youth and young adults experience many challenges beyond the textbook such as food scarcity, little skills, and hope.
NASLA's mission is to create jobs, educate young people, and develop young entrepreneurs who continue to harvesting communities. Through experiential farming and workshops showing how to farm and start a business will provide a pathway for resources, food, mentorship, hope, support, and create a sustainable society. Our team of professionals mentor youth, offer resources and tools for their project needs and serve as a bridge that connects youth to greater opportunities in the agriculture field.
ROOT BIZ will teach foundational skills, offer hands-on training, and boost confidence in new idea development for young people while building partnerships, creating more support opportunities to facilitate access to secured jobs, offer a stipend to NASLA Community Ambassadors, and help young people grow their own businesses. Our focus is to develop the potentials of young people to become resilient and active in community development increasing actions to fighting climate change.
