SERVE celebrates International Youth Day

Posted on 10 Aug 2021

International Youth Day

International Youth Day is celebrated annually on the 12th of August. It is a day to honour all youth voices around the world and to demonstrate the positive potential they have to give back to the world.  
SERVE's Development Programme has shown marginalised youths in the Global South what potential they have to contribute to their society since 2008, and this will continue with the launch of our new ‘Skills for Youth Resilience Programme' (SYRP) this year.

Work is essential for survival in order to provide food, shelter, and clothing, particularly for marginalised young people in the Global South. Working also aids in the development of  self-identity and self-worth. Basically work is important part of everyone’s lives. 
The ‘Skills for Youth Resilience Programme' (SYRP) 2021-2024 will be implemented in Zimbabwe and Mozambique in partnership with Young Africa.
Irish Aid's Civil Society Fund, as well as critical support from public donations to SERVE, Electric Aid, and Young Africa's donor network, are all contributing to the project.

The SYRP is a response to Zimbabwe's and Mozambique's youth unemployment crisis. Its primary goal is to provide up to 5000 marginalised youth (aged 18-35) with affordable and effective holistic Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET). The SYRP emphasizes life skills and entrepreneurship in addition to technical skills.
Please make a donation SERVE today to help support this programme and continue to strengthen the economic and emotional resilience of marginalised young people.
