The 21st February Movement national fundraising committee says plans are at an advanced stage for the hosting of the Youth Business Expo this week which seeks to empower young entrepreneurs with skills.
The business expo, penciled for Harare, intends to give young business people opportunities to interact and share ideas for economic growth in line with the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabeâ€™s wish to eradicate poverty through empowerment initiatives.
The Chairperson of the fundraising committee, Cde Noah Mangondo said preparations for the celebrations are progressing well and various activities to raise funds have been lined up with a business dinner expected on the 24th of this month.
The theme for this yearâ€™s celebrations â€œYouth for indigenisation and empowerment,â€ is aimed at exhibiting the principles and qualities endowed in Cde Mugabe, who is a champion of black economic empowerment with hopes that the young people will emulate the wholesome character of their patron.
The 21st February Movement was established in 1986 as a welfare organisation for youths and as a medium to inspire them.
This yearâ€™s event will be held on the 26th of February in Harare.
