YA Namibia
One of Namibia’s greatest challenges is youth unemployment. An overall unemployment rate of around 30% masks a greater underlying problem among specific age groups: unemployment is as high as 64% in the 15-19 age group, over 50% in the 20-24 age group and 33% in the 25-29 age group. Youth not in Education, Employment and Training (NEET) amount to approximately 200,000. At the same time, the country struggles with growing skills deficits. At present skills shortage is one of the most critical constraints to growth and employment creation. Technical and Vocational Education and Training is recognised as fundamental in fighting unemployment, poverty, hunger and disease.

YA Namibia began training in 2014, providing vocational training in solar technology. The first centre was set up in the coastal industrial harbour town Walvis Bay, at a temporary location. In 2015, Young Africa was offered a training location by the Clay House Project in Otjiwarongo, allowing YA to expand its training courses in green building technologies.
