NGO trains KU youth clubs in enterprise, value addition

Local non-governmental organisation (NGO) Good Health Organisation (GHO) has trained three youth clubs from traditional authorities Kawamba, Wimbe and Njombwa in Kasungu in enterprise and value addition.

Through Kulimbikitsa Ufulu ndi Umoyo wa Achinyamata project, a number of youth clubs in the district have been supported with capital to set up income generating activities to be economically empowered.

Kamanga: Several business
are progressing

In an interview on Wednesday, GHO executive director Gentry Kamanga said the value addition training was conducted after successes which the youth clubs registered in their various businesses.

“After we gave capital to the youth clubs, they ventured into businesses like bee keeping, poultry farming and several other businesses which are progressing.

“We thought it wise to impart value addition knowledge to them so that they can add value to their products and maximise their profits,” he said.

One of the participants from Umodzi Youth Club David Siliva hailed the move, saying that the training was an eye-opener for them to be competitive on the market.

“We are thankful for the training which has enlightened us. We have been taught how to package and label our products which is one way of attracting customers.

“We believe that our businesses will grow after applying the knowledge that we have acquired here thereafter increasing out profits,” he said.

However, Siliva asked the trade office and other stakeholders in the district to help them with good markets as most of the youth clubs sell their products within their communities.

The NGO engaged Small and Medium Enterprises Development Institute to  drill the youth.
