Youth Resilience Training (Zimbabwe)

Zimbabwe Youth Resilience Training Project UnitingWorld

Zimbabwe has estimated unemployment of 90% and an extremely youthful population, with 60% of the country under the age of 25. Resilience training of young adults provides a range of practical skills and builds psycho-social strength within the community, creating a cohort of people with shared values and a commitment to mutual support.

The training includes HIV/AIDs prevention and care, conflict management, peacebuilding, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, community organisation and leadership skills. Training gives youth a sense of self-worth and purpose, as well as tools and knowledge to take control of their place in society and create their own opportunities.

Our Impact

Since 2015, we have provided training to over 800 youth, on topics including HIV and AIDs prevention, peacebuilding, financial literacy and community organising.
