Faced with 94 percent unemployment, Zimbabwean youth don’t have much of a future. Most spend their days hanging out on street corners dreaming, hoping, and planning ways to cross the border to work illegally in South Africa. We have begun a vocational training program for the 200 young people we work with. We currently offer training in woodworking, construction, welding, sewing and computers, as well as resume-writing and job performance.

The young people who receive training will have dual possibilities: finding employment or creating their own employment. We expect that those who work on sewing will open small home businesses making school uniforms, which are high demand. Our metalworking trainees are already receiving orders for decorative items for local safari lodges. And we expect parallel results with the other programs so that they will produce livelihoods for themselves and their future families.
