We are building a skillful, informed and well-organized young generation that is productive and drives the economic growth through creating businesses and employment opportunities for youth. This identifies new opportunities for young people through vocational practical entrepreneurship and employability skills, talent identification and development and career guidance. It helps to reduce youth vulnerability, social marginalization, unemployment and poverty leading towards self-sustainability.
Our goal is to foster vocational practical entrepreneurship and employability skills with attitudes towards youth through the use of practical skills in raising awareness of career opportunities.
