BLANTYRE – President Lazarus Chakwera has said it is his commitment to see the National Youth Service achieve its purpose.

He said this on Tuesday July 19th, 2022 after launching the National Youth Service in Neno.

According to the Malawian leader, the launch of the service is a timely intervention that will perfect his administration’s youth empowerment drive.

“The initiative, which formed part of our campaign promises both in 2019 and 2020 offers a multi-pronged approach to offer profitable ventures to our young people through vocational training and capitalisation of respective trades of choice,” Chakwera said.

He added that the program will train thousands of unemployed youth with marketable skills and connect them to opportunities for productive and profitable work.

“The National Youth Service will empower the youth nationwide which will be across various training options that include crop, livestock, fish and poultry farming, information, communications & Technology (ICT), carpentry, welding, tailoring and renewable technologies,” he added.

Chakwera then said that is why they have linked it to the National Economic Empowerment Fund (Neef) and Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (Teveta) to create the right synergies for growth and sustenance of the program.
