Only through decent employment opportunities can young peopleget the chance to work themselves out of poverty. Focusing on youth is a must for any country.”                                                                                                    — Juan Somavia Director-General, International Labour Organization

Most of these young people look up to the government for remedy and because the government. This programme has been fashioned to bridge the skill gap thus enhancing the employability of young people
