Scaling-up youth employment in agriculture initiative

01.07.2023 - 31.07.2030

The contribution will support the scaling-up of a successful youth (self)-employment initiative across the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. The use of a model combining well-targeted skills training, capacity building and support to enter formal and informal economies will enhance youth employment in agriculture. Building on Switzerland’s established relationship with SADC and its recognised technical and vocational training expertise, Switzerland plays a key role in facilitating this work at regional level.


Scaling Up Youth Employment in Agriculture Initiative

01.08.2018 - 31.10.2023

Education systems in Southern Africa do not prepare youth for work; they cannot access or create economic opportunities and ignore the available options. The project will scale up in Southern Africa a model already tested by Switzerland in Tanzania. It will improve (self)-employment of 20’000 young women and men in Zimbabwe and Zambia by strengthening their skills and matching them with existing job opportunities, thereby contributing to the implementation of youth policies in-country and regionally.
