10th Birthday celebration of Young Africa Epworth

Ministry of Youth Development in 2005 gave Raj &Dorien the house donated by Mrs Chikerema , in Epworth, in the outskirts of Harare, to provide skills training to young people of the area. It has since remained as a satellite centre of Young Africa Skills Centre in Chitungwiza. Young Africa in the Netherlands supported the setup of all the utilities and the British Embassy in Harare provided the entire furnitur...e needed for 120 students and 8 member staff team. SERVE Ireland with Irish Aid and others, funded in 2012 to build a two storey building to take in more trades and students.

In these 10 years Young Africa Centre Epworth trained about 4000 students and through Festivals and outreach programme on peer education on HIV prevention, reached about 50,000 beneficiaries.

The celebration was graced by the people who made it happen, Deputy Head of the Mission- British Embassy, Irish Consul in Zimbabwe, Director –Ministry of Youth Development, Local Government Authorities of Epworth and our own staff and students.
