Zambian YouthIT Citizen Exchange
Zambian young adults are in D.C. from July 1st through 6th through
their participation in the Youth Information Technology
Micro-enterprise Project-Zambia (YouthIT-Zambia), a project designed to
support job skills training, employment and entrepreneurship
development for Zambian youth. They are the winners of a competitive
business plan competition.
While they are in D.C. from July 1st to July 6th, they will participate in cultural site visits and meetings at the offices of interested project stakeholders. They will go to southern California from July 7th to 14th for a similar sets of visits where they will be hosted by a network of southern California Rotary clubs (e.g. Altadena, Irvine, Simi Valley) who have also been involved.
