ZYC Bulawayo provincial programmes co-ordinator Liberty Mashoko told NewsDay yesterday the five-day workshop will be held at Kamativi Training Centre between November 11-15.
“We have also invited people from the agricultural sector, including people from the Department of Agriculture and Rural Extension and officials from the Department of Veterinary Services, to train them on cattle rearing and poultry,” Mashoko said.
“Lately we have been receiving overwhelming co-operation from the youths in each and every province in their participation in these training exercises. The last training exercise was held in Matabeleland South where the youths benefited immensely.”
Mashoko said all youths invited for the workshop had received funding for their projects from CABS.
“The number of youths who will participate in this capacity-building training stands at 100, which is a satisfactory number to show that youths are fully involved.
“At the end of the training, participants will be given two certificates each that will be attached to their proposals for the National Youth Fund Loans application forms.
“CABS will then in time approach these youths and disburse loans to each of these 100 participants,” he said.
