Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to create an environment where young people have more economic participation.
It's all part of making a better world.
Every young person will have a clear pathway to a trade, a business, or employment opportunities. his will lead to other benefits, like a lower crime rate and better quality of life among the disadvantaged youth.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by young people from the rural areas and the urban poor.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Development of capacity building programs for aspiring entrepreneurs.
Increased government funding towards youth polytechnics.
Participation of small and medium-sized private sector players (employers) in training and capacity building.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will know that my vision has come into fruition when:
There will be a documented government policy/sessional paper, encouraging the private sector to contribute their resources towards training, research, and capacity building for young entrepreneurs and tradesmen and women.
When we have more young people heading successful corporations and commercial entities.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
