6. Conclusions and Recommendations
The design of any subsequent Phase of the Project in the youth employment sector should focus more on: (a) operationalisation of the national youth policies on the local level; (b) adding value to educational systems through development of BTVET curriculum for diploma courses; (c) put more focus on addressing youth financial inclusion from a macro level by establishing a link between financial access and financial inclusion for young people; (d) exploring further the potential for using the mobile technology for improving access to financial, employment and entrepreneurial services, especially for rural or other hard-to-reach youth populations; (e) introducing innovative approaches to financing such as micro-consignment, which is a low-risk and flexible sales model that can be used to identify, train and inspire young entrepreneurs and educate consumers about low-cost, socially beneficial products and increase access to those products; (f) developing gender integrated youth projects to benefit equally both women and men and meet their needs.
