In Zimbabwe, Young Africa runs two centres: the Young Africa Skills Centre (YASC) in Chitungwiza, a high density area near the capital Harare and YA?s satellite centre at Epworth (another township close to Harare). These centres reach out to over 1000 young people daily and to over 10,000 participants per festival. The impact of all programmes is monitored closely: 80% of the beneficiaries feels better off after training; 70% of the youngsters even make more responsible decisions in regard to HIV/Aids. Lobby, gender sensitivity and HIV/Aids awareness are mainstreamed in action. Governmental and non-governmental authorities come to learn from us and have implemented the methodology of Young Africa into their own works.
