Theme: “Entering the Market Place”

Rationale for choice of theme: Many young school leavers have the erroneous believe that all they need to enter the market place is plenty of money. Many are stocked because they have been unable to gather enough. Some had money and no experience of what obtains in the market place; so they rushed in and rushed out, losing out on their investment…

Deliverables for the workshop:

  • Training on dynamics of the market place
  • Business plan development
  • Access to finance
  • Business mentorship
