The Africa Institute for Capacity Development (AICD) an organization which trains people in businesses skills has vowed to take the youth to greater heights through providing them with business trainings and practical knowledge in order to enhance productivity in their businesses.
Admission Consultant, Abel Mkandawire said they want to help government effort on uplifting youth business skills so that they can be independent.
‘‘We want to complement governments efforts to help in the uplifting of the youth in their business endeavors that believed to be a successful way to arrest unemployment problems and poverty levels in the country’’, Mkandawire said.
Mkandawire said AICD is a reputable internationally recognized organization that offers the training on a fee and allows flexibility payments.
‘‘Participants of our seminars and trainings can use currency of their choice because we know it is not only Malawians who can come for our trainings so those coming from outside the country are allowed to pay upfront at their own convenient in their countries. This is good because it gives them chance for thorough financial scrutiny and transactions,’’ he explained.
He articulated that their institute sees the potential of the youth in the country as government has always touted for youth development initiatives.
‘‘AICD will provide advanced skills using renowned international facilitators we have been engaging in other countries like Kenya, South Africa and United Arab Emirates to deliver the needful skills and realize immediate results,” Mkandawire said.
He disclosed that the institute has already courted different world class successful youth entrepreneurs to aid drilling the youth in the business fraternity with an aim of role modeling them.
‘‘Our head office in South Africa is geared to send us international speakers and facilitators as it has been the trend when offering similar lessons to other professionals, within and outside Malawi, ’’ he added.
Spokesperson in the Ministry of Labour, sports and Manpower Development Symon Mvundula commended the role private sector is taking to supplement government agenda in the country.
According to Mvundula the ministry wants the youth to be the hub of economic development by providing them with the required knowledge hence applauded AICD for its plans which he said would turn the life of the youth in the country.
‘‘We appeal for more companies and institutions in the private sector to invest in the youth so that together we can see Malawi developing. Such trainings and seminars add value in the trained individuals,’’ Mvundula said.
