Central East African Railways (Cear) has advised students to think of going into entrepreneurship than seeking employment after graduating.
Cear facilities and maintenance officer Joseph Kaundachulu-Mwale gave the advice on Saturday at Ecom Vocational Training Institute (Evti) in Blantyre during a graduation ceremony.
Twenty-eight students graduated with grade one certificates in general fitting and discipleship.
“By becoming entrepreneurs, you will help in reducing unemployment. So, do not be afraid because you can do it,” said Kaundachulu-Mwale.
Evti principal Benson Mongiwa said the institution is faced with high drop out rate. He said the class started with 46 students but only 28 have graduated.
“The drop out was due to lack of fees and I appeal to the corporate world for assistance through awarding of scholarships,” said Mongiwa. n
