Zambia and Namibia have signed a landmark agreement on youth training, paving the way for enhanced collaboration between the two countries.

The agreement aims to facilitate the exchange of expertise and resources to build capacity in youth coaching, mentorship and job placement.

The Ministry of Defence and the Namibian Ministry of Sports, Youth and National Service signed the agreement in Lusaka on Tuesday.

Zambia’s Defence Minister, Ambrose Lufuma, said the partnership would also provide young people with opportunities to train in leadership, entrepreneurship, and vocational skills to help unlock their potential.

“It will allow sharing of knowledge, and foster a deeper appreciation of each other’s culture, practices, and innovations,” Tjongarero added.

“The initiative is tailored to assisting the youth in becoming self-sustaining, improving agricultural production, contributing to national food security efforts, and enhancing training program capacities,” Tjongarero stated.
