Improving TVET access and entrepreneurship skills for vulnerable youth in rural areas

Young people make up 35% of the population across Sub Saharan Africa, and approx 45% live in rural areas according to World Bank projections. Rural youth present an impressive opportunity for countries looking to take advantage of the demographic dividend, however they often lack access to quality and relevant opportunities for skills training to enter the labour market. Federation Humana People to People members in 6 countries run Vocational Training Schools in rural areas, with input from the private sector and flexible options to equip students for successful transition to the labour market.
