Youth Empowerment Society (YES) is inviting young people to a Financial Literacy Workshop by Nelson Letshwene on the 26th of February 2016, at the University of Botswana Library Auditorium. Despite establishment of youth programmes aimed at economically empowering young Botswana citizens, high socio-economic impartiality still persists, thus this workshop will she some light on how to be financially empowered no matter what you earn.
Our Government has, over the years, embraced citizen economic empowerment in its development planning process in the absence of a specific citizen empowerment policy. A number of programmes and policies aimed at supporting citizen economic empowerment have been implemented.
Commitment from the government, youth and other stake holders needs to prevail and most importantly, motivation on the side of the youth seeking assistance is essential as the road to better living conditions is thorny and bumpy.
The admission is free.
