Sponsor a youth to complete training and contribute to re-building Mozambique

On 14 March 2019, Mozambique was devastated by Cyclone Idai. Young Africa Beira  felt the full force of the storm and subsequently many buildings were damaged. At the time the storm hit, 560 economically, educationally and socially disadvantaged youths were enrolled in technical training at the centre. The youths, who have now lost everything, were participating in Young Africa’s transformative youth empowerment programme, composed of technical training, life skills education and entrepreneurship training. They were on the cusp of joining the 13,000+ youths that have graduated from Young Africa Mozambique since 2008.

 
Fortunately, the workshops did not suffer as much damage as the other buildings and training can re-commence. Beira, now more than ever needs, skilled carpenters, builders, welders and plumbers etc. Young Africa can provide these with your support.

 
For €190 Young Africa can:

·        Pay the fees for one student

·        Provide transport to and from the training centre

·        Provide one decent meal per day per beneficairy

 
These school fees are essential for Young Africa’s survival as they are used by the franchisees , local entrepreneurs to train our youths, to pay their rent to Young Africa. Their rent covers Young Africa’s core costs and keeps the centre running.

 
Sponsor a youth. Support the future of Mozambique. Support the rehabilitation of the communities surrounding Young Africa Beira.
