The Challenge

Up to 59% of graduates are unemployed in Zambia

Africa is experiencing a youth unemployment crisis.

Zambia is one of the world’s fastest growing countries. It’s also one of the youngest by median age.

Even the brightest young Zambians are graduating to find virtually no job opportunities or options for advancement. They are locked into a vicious cycle of poverty and exclusion.

Gainful employment is the single most powerful tool for sustainable poverty elimination, and Africa is missing out.
