A GROUP OF non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have come together to organise a jobs summit aimed at equipping youths with entrepreneurial skills so that they can start their businesses.

This was revealed by Greenfield Resources development consultant, Kudakwashe Chidhakwa and Shekinah Business Solutions manager, Ithumeleng Senekane in a recent  interview with Sunday Express.

Greenfield Resources is a development consultancy and it helped found the Polihali Forum, a voluntary non-profit association which aims to create an enabling environment for local companies to participate in national projects including the multi-billion dollar Lesotho Highlands Water Project.

Shekinah Business Solutions is a local business solutions company that offers project management and research among other services.

Mr Chidhakwa said the summit will serve as a platform for national dialogue and exchange among government, civil society, academics, the private sector, development partners and the public on how to address the challenge of high unemployment levels in the country.

“We have an unemployment rate of 27.25 percent according to World Bank 2017 statistics,” Mr Chidhakwa said, adding, “The Summit was motivated by the observation that the present economic growth rates are not making a significant impact on job creation”.

“The economic marginalisation of certain population groups particularly the youth is a major challenge that we face as a nation. The summit will identify gaps and barriers hindering access to employment opportunities particularly for vulnerable groups like the disabled, rural based populations and young women.

“The summit will be open to the public and they will have direct access to human resources managers from leading companies in manufacturing, agriculture and services. We will highlight the changing trends and employment prospects in the formal job market. We will also discuss the opportunities in the informal sector as a viable alternative solution to our current employment challenges.

He said they expect key ministries like Small Businesses; Trade and Agriculture to play key roles during and after the summit.

“The summit will enable the public to demand that government ensures that the marginalised population groups participate in major projects like the Polihali Dam which is set to be constructed next year as part of the second phase of the Lesotho Highlands Water Project.

“The summit will mark an innovative turning point in how all critical stakeholders engage to achieve tangible results as we approach the Vision 2020 milestone which states that by 2020 we must reduce youth unemployment,” Mr Chidhakwa said.

For her part, Miss Senekane said that young people need to be better informed about entrepreneurial opportunities so that they can start their own businesses and thus reduce unemployment.

She said there was need for all stakeholders to engage in dialogue to improve the living conditions of Basotho.

The summit is expected to become an annual event.

  1. I am so excited about what has happened lately and I cannot keep silent. Some of you know my life very well. You know how happy I and my family was. Those of you who have visited me at my home you know that i had everything a lady wishes for in life. Life was good but it is hard to explain how things changed for the worse so quickly. I first heard rumors that my man is seeing another woman. In a short time I found out that it was true. When I confronted him, he left me for that woman. He blocked me on all social networks. Luckily a caring old friend of mine May took me to this Mama Anina +27603051423 Love Spells Caster South Africa who had also helped her when she had a similar problem. She performed special prayers for me, cleansed me from bad luck & also fixed my financial problems. A few days after the rituals, my man came back home asking for forgiveness. I could not believe it. We recently got married and am so happy and excited. , I thank you my friend for standing with me. Friends, If you are having any problems in your life or marriage, protection, or Job spell. I also refer you to this wonderful Lady Mama Anina Love Spells Caster South Africa +27603051423

  7. As to bonds, if you are fretful about rising portion rates you engage shorter duration funds. A short style bond fund on example, or still a Readies Market Fund. That reduces the middling duration of your portfolio, and thus its acuteness to weight rates.

    Be warned, if interest rates don’t rise as you suppose, you are accepting a lower comply to do comment gagner de l’argent this blueprint (the yield curve is normally upward sloping, the longer the perfection, the higher the Yield to Readiness). A lot of money has been departed in the model 10 years by investors (myself included) who were “sure” that weight rates would rise.
