Funds for unemployed graduates unveiled

Herald Reporter
Government has set aside US$670 000 from Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (ZIMDEF) to fund projects for unemployed graduates, a Cabinet Minister has said. Speaking in Harare last Thursday at an event organised by the Zimbabwe Congress of Students Union, (ZICOSU), Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Minister Cde Oppah Muchinguri said through a programme called Graduate Entrepreneurship and Employment Promotion Programme (GEEPP), the money would be used to fund projects for the unemployed graduates, teaching them to be self-reliant and innovative.

Minister Muchinguri said the programme will cascade to all provinces, and in order to mobilise additional resources, she will create linkages with external partners by exploiting bilateral and multilateral agreements already in place.

“President Mugabe noted that the number of unemployed graduates on our streets was increasing. My ministry responded by deliberately resuscitating the Graduate Entrepreneurship and Employment Promotion Programme,” she said. Herald
