Youth Employment

Youth are the parents of tomorrow and at a critical point in determining whether they will escape the trap of poverty. Help a Child Rwanda empowers marginalized youth to prepare them for decent work opportunities, and to be able to grow out of poverty. Help a Child’s key activities:

  • Forming and building the capacity of youth groups so that they gain life skills, begin saving, and take action to further their development.
  • Supporting youth to learn modern farming techniques and exploit agriculture as an income generating opportunity.
  • Providing technical and vocational training so that youth create their own off-farm jobs.
  • Linking youth to each other so that they form cooperatives and conduct joint advocacy.
