CCCYD has provided micro-entrepreneurship training to young women and youth to further support their professional development. CCCYD has implemented lessons on creating sustainable and profitable means of livelihood and on financial management. Furthermore, CCCYD has advanced initiatives for orphan and vulnerable children's vocational and educational attainment. This initiative has received wide support and has provided small loans and trainings to over 275 women and youth in the North-Western province. CCCYD is grateful for the support of the Savings Bank Foundation for International Cooperation that has been supporting the organization through the implementation of micro business simulation games and training.
CCCYD partnered with Planet Startup Inc. in 2018, a 501(c)(3) public volunteer charitable organization associated with the United States Federal Government, to establish and implement an alliance for supporting emerging entrepreneurs in Zambia. This program includes a three month training through an online and local mentorship program on entrepreneurship.
In addition to primary education and micro entrepreneurship training, CCCYD is also providing employable vocational skills. This initiative has been implemented to support the youth in furthering their educational attainment as well as their future professional endeavors. The program includes lessons focused on improving computer skills, developing English fluency through writing, reading, and presentational activities as well as gaining familiarity with knitting, design, carpentry, and photography.
