Economic Empowerment

Challenge Overview: Over 15 million youths in Sub-Sahara Africa who enter the labour market each year cannot find employment either because jobs are few or their skills differ from those required in the market or their skills are below standard or are not skilled at all. These four challenges have held very many youths back in poverty. Income is essential for young people to propelthemselves out of poverty as well as to sustain their journey on realising their full potential. For those reasons, CAEVA UK and CAEVA UG through CCOPID, implement the following interventions to enable youths make income so as to overcome poverty.
