“We would like to use Malawi as a model in Africa that economic growth can easily be achieved when jobs have been created for the people,” he said.

Community Colleges will start in October, this year using the existing Community Day Secondary School Colleges, he said.

In these colleges, he explained, the youths will be trained in community-driven technical skills, entrepreneurship and other relevant technical expertise.

Establishing Community Colleges is one of Mutharika’s dreams to provide skills training and development to the youths in rural areas to curb unemployment.
