National Youth Policy and Advocacy

Jump to: navigation, search

I got this information from the CEEC website:

In 2010 the following target groups had their applications for funding approved:

Target                              Approved

Youth                                 53

Women                             105

HIV/AIDS                           4 

People with Disabilities   5

Total                                  458 (Source: CEEC, 2010:1)

GabKon, I find something very interesting on the CEEC website.Under its Vision, specifically, strategic direction, the CEEC hopes to empower disadvantaged groups such as Youth, Women, Disabled and citizens living with HIV/AIDS. This is to encourage increased participation in economic opportunities without discrimination. Why is the Youth classified as disadvantaged. Don't their voices get nowhere in your country?--Kafuiaheto 22:42, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Reading through most your view and that of the others, it looks there is little governmental intervention in youth policy matters, especially in Zambia. This obviously could make the policy work better. But what I am emphasizing here is that a youth policy should dwell more on skill development than giving money to people who may not be able to manage it well
