The Chawama Youth Project

The award-winning Chawama Youth Project helps young people in the township of Chawama. The centre offers ‘life skills’ courses in subjects such as Auto Mechanics, Tailoring, Carpentry, and ICT to improve the young people’s chances of finding work. IICD support the project since 2006. Over three hundred people have been trained and the centre has integrated ICT components into several courses. Teachers are using the internet to enhance content (e.g. by accessing diagrams of engines using Google Images instead of drawing on the blackboard); hand-outs are being produced quickly; existing lesson plans are now being stored and re-used.
