Mr. Youngson Ngwira, the District Youth Officer for Mzuzu visited Centre for Youth and Development (CYD) in Mzuzu as the part of his familization process. Our Executive Director, James Gondwe briefed him on the programs that Center for Youth and Development carries out to empower youth.
The director briefed the DYO on our projects including; Inspiring Young farmers Project, ICT for Education, Child and Youth development, Natural resources management, health, water and sanitation, food nutrition and income security.
The DYO visited CYD to encourage and appreciate its effort in recognizing the youth which are mostly unemployed due to lack of jobs in Malawi and lack of education experience due to school dropout which among other things is a result of lack of financial support or lack of access to secondary and tertiary education.
CYD empowers the youth by among other things offering them education training in ICT, supporting youth clubs that are performing different development activities such as Agriculture etc.
