With a special focus on reaching young women, Zimbabwe:Works is preparing the country’s marginalized young people to enter the workforce. Receiving initial funding from USAID and an additional commitment from DFID and the Embassy of Sweden (Sida), this initiative has brought us into partnership with local NGOs and companies to provide critical job readiness training. We’re also helping entrepreneurs like Rudo, Clever, and Fortune succeed in self-employment through business coursework and access to microfinance loans and savings and loan programs. Through use of our locally adapted Passport to Success® curriculum, we’re empowering young Zimbabweans with life skills such as increased self-esteem, and we’re promoting civic engagement. Throughout the initiative, which is a part of the global Youth:Work framework, our capacity building work guides our local partners to develop the business acumen to succeed and operate sustainably.
