Abstract

The study on Sustainable Charcoal Project to Reduce Youth Unemployment Problem, aimed at creating public awareness on the ways of addressing youth unemployment problem within the local environment. The study was started with Community Needs Assessment conducted in Chanzuru Ward so as to identify a project for interventions as a response to the challenges facing youth. Participatory methods were used for data collection during the study. The needs assessments findings revealed challenges facing youth and some of these include lack of employment for youth which rank as the first priority low level of education and ignorance (mainly entrepreneurship education) and low level of participation in various decisions that affect youth. The main project activities that were implemented include public meetings for awareness creation on youth problems, stakeholders meeting for local fundraising, provision of charcoal briquetting facilities and to conduct monitoring and evaluation. Project monitoring and evaluation was also conducted to see whether the activities implemented were supporting the project to attain its objectives. The study recommended the need for the community, governments, NGOs and other stakeholders to play their roles of supporting young people to access their rights in an equal ground with non youths.
