Young Africa stands for empowerment of young people in Africa, especially for the disadvantaged and most vulnerable among them. That is why we have grown to focus more on including youths with disabilities into our training programmes.
To give an example of how we do that: Young Africa Zimbabwe have taken a proactive approach in training and equipping youth with all disabilities with its recently built computer lab proving that disability need not be a barrier to reaching y...our dreams. Facilities at Young Africa Mozambique has adapted its centres with access ramps for wheel chairs, braille signboards and other equipment that enable young people with disability to come for vocational training. Young Africa Mozambique also trains staff and student in disability awareness, for example in sign languages. In the next years, it aims to equip 250 youths with disabilities and assist to achieve (self-) employment. All these programmes are financed by European Union.
Our impact is constantly being monitored and registred by our partnerorganisation SERVE. Read all about the impact study conducted at YA Zimbabwe and Mozambique in 2015, by clicking here.
Our Annual Report for 2015 is here. In it you will find information about our results, programmes, success stories, financials, new innovations and the first year of our Expansion Strategy. We are ever grateful to our donors, supporters, franchisees, partners and management for being a part of a year that was sure to set the precedent for much growth and success in the future. And of course, we thank the young people who take part in our various programmes and constantly teach and inspire us to grow and adapt. Working with you we are assured that, indeed, the future of Africa is in the hands of the youth of Africa.
