The Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, Paul Mavima said that the government aims to make millionaires out of kids within 10 years after leaving school.
Speaking during the Midlands Provincial prize giving day in Kwekwe last Friday, Mavima said:
I am working with youngsters where we are currently asking for farms that are underutilised.
We aim to place the school leavers in those farms where intensive production will take place.
We have just received our first farm which is 1000 hectares. It is going to accommodate at least 400 school leavers.
We want the youngsters to be millionaires within the next 10 years.
We have a clear strategy and we want to replicate the programme in the country’s ten provinces.
The country cannot talk about unemployment when there are abundant resources.
The graduates from our schools must be able to transform the socio-economic situation of the country.
We can reduce unemployment through the provision of relevant education.
