Countrywide distribution of ICT equipment for youths completed

General News Countrywide distribution of ICT equipment for youths completed

The Ministry of Youth, Sport and Child Development has completed the countrywide distribution of ICT business equipment to youths in 60 districts.

Ministry Spokesperson Kennedy Mukupa said the Ministry is actively implementing the ICT Business Empowerment Scheme for young people in the country.

Mr. Mukupa told ZANIS in an interview today that the ministry remains keen to empowering youths country wide in Information and Communication Technology (ICTs), adding that it is the ministry’s desire to see to it that more youths benefit from the programme.

He disclosed that the project is one of the quick win projects for young people as outlined in the 2015 National Youth Policy.

“Yes I can confirm that we have finished the distribution of ICT equipment to the youths in 60 districts in the country. We chose six districts per Province and that was successfully implemented,” he stressed.

Early this year, the Ministry Of Youth, Sport and Child Development embarked on the ICT Business Empowerment Scheme aimed at empowering youths from 60 districts.

The identified youth cooperatives was each provided with 5 desk tops, a printer and an internet connector, to enable them establish a business center and youths with interest in ICT have since applied to be a part of the empowerment programme through the various Provincial offices countrywide.
