The partnership between Zimbabwe Youth SDG and United Kingdom based Elearning Company Premium Access has proved to be a shot in the arm for 30 young entrepreneurs who recently completed the course.
Zim Youth SDG in September announced the partnership through various social media platforms and a call for participants followed that announcement. The call for participants received overwhelming response from the country’s ten provinces which saw more than 215 applications.
Unfortunately the first part of the scholarship could only accommodate 50 people which consisted of 5 from each province and an equal representation based on gender and rural or urban residency and out of the 50 only 30 were able to complete the programme and were awarded their internationally recognized certificates.
The first group did not only walk away with professional course certificates which would help improve their entrepreneurship journey but Mr Charles Massimo the Director of Premium Access gave the pioneers of this partnership a chance to be paid brand ambassadors for Premium Access in their various provinces.
Mr Massimo highlighted that it was of grave importance for the young people to benefit from their hard work and Premium Access also saw an opportunity of making the brand known across the country, and who better to market the brand than those who have firsthand experience of the brand.
