Entrepreneurship programme to benefit youths

Story by John Nhandara

A youth empowerment programme to capacitate youths with entrepreneurial skills and business start-up kits has been launched in Harare this Tuesday.

The programme, Biz Innovator Start-Up Training for Young Entrepreneurs, is meant for less privileged youths in urban and rural areas who are being capacitated with entrepreneurial skills and business start-up kits through a grant.

Hozi Innovator co-founder, Mr Freedom Mukunga said, “The genesis of this initiative traces back to the Alumi Engagement Innovation Fund in 2023 where we united our diverse expertise focused on inclusive economic empowerment programmes for youths. We believe entrepreneurship is a catalyst for empowerment as it creates job opportunities and drives innovation.”

“We have implemented the same programme in Eswatini and we believe Zimbabwean youths will benefit much in terms of business ideas and from the investors,” said entrepreneur, Ndaya Lukoji.

Beneficiaries of the programme are confident the project will transform their lives.

One of the beneficiaries said, “I think this programme is beneficial as it will enhance my business skills. I am going to remodel my business plans as a result of this platform.”

“I will tap from the grant and develop my business idea into practical action,” said another beneficiary.

The programme is being implemented by partners that include Hozi innovator, Edu Fri of Eswatini, Institute of International Business and the Jacobson Institute for Youth Entrepreneurship
