Youth

The youth sector in Zimbabwe is one of the most vulnerable. In fact unemployment is the most pervasive challenge faced by youths in Zimbabwe due to the socio-economic and political collapse that characterised the past decade. Unemployment has brought all sorts of vices including participation in political motivated violence, spread of HIV and drug abuse. This has also contributed to very poor youth coordination often characterised by antagonistic relationships. For that reason, NGOs dealing within this sector are engaged amongst other things in strengehening Youth Leadership and in providing career guiding as well as training for life skills. It is also in the aim of the Youth Sector to elaborate a widely accepted youth policy backed by adequate resources for its operationalisation.
