Youth unemployment is one of the biggest challenges faced by more than 56, 000 youths in Zambia. Social innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership can help create jobs and reduce high unemployment among youths in Zambia. Finding myself as African ChangeMakers Fellow Alumni Cohort 2 (ACFellow) was a dream and I refuse to keep all the information and knowledge that I have acquired as an ACFellow to myself. I have a task to roll training and establish social innovation enterprise to reach places in Zambia, especially to youths and women in rural communities in Zambia.
I just founded Powering Young Initiatives, a Social Innovation, Eco-Inclusive, Agripreneur Venture Founded in November 2018 by John Kakandelwa – African ChangeMakers Fellow Alumni Cohort 2 (ACFellow). Powering Young Initiatives was established to Inform, Mentor, Empower and Transform (IMET)the Rural and urban children, youths and women with social innovation and eco-Inclusive and organic agripreneur knowledge and skills for value.
More than 1,000,000 children, youths and women live in abject poverty in Zambia, our team believe the we can inform, mentor, empower and transform these dissatisfied and under targeted population by providing them with tailored social Innovations, eco-inclusive and agripreneur skills.
