Zambia Empowerment Hub for Entrepreneurship skills and Trainings (ZEHEST) says it has continued to conduct entrepreneurship and empowerment symposiums both in rural and urban areas.
ZEHEST executive director, Clarence Muzyamba said this is done in order to curb the high poverty levels among people who did not manage to finish or attend school especially in rural areas.
He said the symposiums have involved traditional leaders in teaching citizens survival skills through the trainings and empowerments.
“A lot of people are stressed economically and financially, hence they need an empowerment hub like ZEHEST which is strategically positioned,” he said.
Mr. Muzyamba also called developmental partners to come on board to financially and technically support the program.
“We also urge the new government to come up with clear, fair and balanced empowerment strategy,” he further said.
