He said with such skills, they can create jobs for others, rather than waiting for white collar jobs.
This was disclosed at Bowe Vocational  and Technical Training College in Kasungu during the graduation of 149 youths from coffee growing districts to prevent them from child labour on Thursday.
This is part of ILO’s Accelerating Action for the Elimination of Child labour in global supply chains in Africa project which the Impact Centre for Economic Empowerment and Development(ICEED) is implementing in Ntchisi,  Mzimba and Chitipa.
ICEED’s Madalitso Chidumu said the skills are to help young people to improve their economic status through vocational trades  than engaging in child labour.
