Malova Youth Association (MYA) has embarked on four programmes to increase the social economic security of the unemployed youths in the country.
Speaking at a press conference held in Mzuzu on Tuesday, president of the Association Tega Mwaluwasa said the programmes they have embarked on are entrepreneurship, vocational village banking techniques, disability empowerment and agriculture.
Said Mwaluwasa: “We will be engaged in soap and yoghurt making, brick laying, piggery farming, among others. The proceeds will be sold out and youth who will be put in various groups shall share the money among themselves simply to ensure they are economically empowered.”
Mwaluwasa said the Ministry of Labour including the Joyce Banda Foundation will help in imparting the expertise and finances to achieve the dream.
The message comes at a time when Malawi on Wednesday joined the rest of the world in commemorating the international Labour Day, which falls on May 1 every year.
