GWERU – Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe
(EFZ), a Pentecostal churches’ representative body, recently engaged young
people in Gweru on a business and entrepreneurial capacity-building training as
efforts to alleviate poverty among youths.

The training
was conducted under the theme, ‘Reducing poverty through entrepreneurship and
financial management skills’.

It was
attended by the EFZ National Executive Team and various other stakeholders.

EFZ
Gweru district chairperson, Pastor Alfred Hove said it was prudent for young
people to use their knowledge and skills to develop themselves.

“We
are happy because youths from the church were given the platform for skills
acquisition on how to start businesses and venture into entrepreneurship. At
the end of the day, one needs to earn a living and support their loved ones. We
urge the youth not to be hesitant to approach government offices or even to inquire
on projects, loans and grants which are set to benefit them.

Hove
further urged all young people to participate in youth-driven developmental initiatives.

“I
would like to encourage our youths who are in the church to be involved so that
they are not left behind. We also want them to apply for land and engage in developmental
projects so that they sustain themselves,” he said.

Nyaradzo
Tabe-Ndlovu, a provincial officer in the Ministery of Youth, said entrepreneurship
was the surest way to a more successful life.

“We
have many educated yet unemployed youths and that means we must not fold our hands
and do nothing. There are youths out there who have led by example; through hard
work and commitment, they have changed their fortunes.

“I
am also happy to inform you that company registration processes will now be done
in provinces as government seeks to decentralise services. Operations are therefore available at provincial level because we want to see youth succeeding.

“The
reason why we are on the subject of entrepreneurship is because most people in Zimbabwe
are now entrepreneurs. For one to be a successful entrepreneur, he or she should
have a clear business idea which is also open and clear to the intended market,”
said Tabe-Ndlovu
