87 youth from Mashonaland West got a shot on their arms after receiving between ZWL3000 and ZWL5000 Covid 19 relief fund from the government through the Ministry of Youths, Arts and Recreation. The beneficiaries from Zvimba and Makonde were drawn from Agriculture; Mining; Arts and Retail business.
Addressing the gathering at Cooks Hall in Chinhoyi today, Mashonaland west provincial Minister Honorable Mary Mliswa Chikoka urged the Ministry to ensure the Youth Grant becomes a permanent feature on their annual budget such that many youths from remote areas benefit. He went on challenging the beneficiaries to be real entrepreneurs that will grow into big corp-orates and to avoid financial mismanagement.
Agrippa Mataka and Caroline Mudekwa who both received this funding thanked the government for the gesture.
Mashonaland west province becomes the first to receive the funding following its launch last week in Chegutu.
