Zanu-PF Youth League has started compiling a national database for youths containing qualifications or acquired skills to help them get employment.
The database will have youths’ competencies and interests with a view to helping them to access opportunities in industry. Deputy Secretary for the Youth League, Lewis Matutu, yesterday told The Chronicle that the nationwide programme would be starting today to capture every youth and ensure that no-one is left behind. Said Matutu:
The online platform is open to all Zimbabweans to register their skills and qualifications. It is an innovation which allows the Youth League to track what skill sets Zimbabwean youths have and match those skills to relevant vacancies, provide information about advanced training workshops as well as loans and investment opportunities the national youth may be eligible to apply for. Youth is defined as people aged between 15 and 35. All skill sets and talents are welcome. We recognize that not all skills require a university degree. The database caters to a diverse population as represented by the Zimbabwean population, with skills ranging from hair dressing and carpentry to engineering and photography.
The Zanu PF Youth League is a wing of the party for people less than 40 years of age. Read More About Zanu-PF Youth League
