Youth Empowerment

We provide high potential but disadvantaged young people with technical, life and entrepreneurship skills as well as on-the-job training and job placements support.


We believe that basic education for girls leads to better reproductive & family health, as well as lower rates of child mortality and malnutrition and a key in the fight against the spread of HIV and AIDS.


Increasing citizens’ participation in democratic processes is a key to sustainable development. This means ensuring equal participation between men and women in leadership and decision making processes.


Our health interventions for young people aim to develop a fundamental set of skills and competencies to deal with complex challenges of health, development and sexuality.

I thought my dreams were shattered when I graduated from high school with a ‘D’ grade. Due to my bad grade & lack of college fees I could not enroll to any college. After six years, I heard about Vusha YEP. ACWICT has restored my lost dreams, I have gained a lot, and my career path is now  in ICT Brian


I currently earn an average of $1,500 monthly since its peak season for online academic writing. I was lucky I got hired by a client who was impressed and has given me an online account in their company. ACWICT saved my financial life. I am always grateful. Thank you so much Nancy
