Change the World: Unlock the the Power of Youth
Is a project funded by the Nationale Postcode Loterij and seeks to increase youth empowerment in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia.
Young people in Southern Africa face a myriad of challenges in their daily lives. The most common of these challenges is unemployment due to lack of skills and/or employment opportunities. Moreover, social and economic difficulties and disadvantages often force Youth to drop-out of school as their caregivers may not be able to afford to pay school fees. Youth face roughly double the unemployment rate of adults, with significant variation by country. In response to the challenge of unemployment in Southern Africa, Young Africa International, with support and funding from the Nationale Postcode Loterij, seeks to increase its support and impact through skills empowerment in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia by strongly increasing the number of Ambassadors of Change (young people) until the end of 2020.
