Over 70 young people in Lilongwe have been drilled in business and academic excellence courtesy of non-profit organization Liberation Commission (LC).
The training was conducted under the theme “Be useful to your nation” at Nazerene Hall in the capital on July 6th.
Speaking to this reporter, manager for LC in Malawi Pr. Joseph Njala said the idea arose upon understanding the need of training people due to high unemployment rate in the country.
Njala said most of the people fail to get trained by renowned institutions in the country due to limited resources hence they thought of giving a daylong business management training for free to participants.
“This training is meant to empower people, youths in particular who are highly hit by unemployment, to make sound decisions in changing their lives.
We are urging Malawians to be vigilant in supporting the government in making our people developed and engaging in successful businesses,” said Njala
He added that time has come for people to start venturing into businesses other than relying on being employed alone.
On her part, one of the participants Maureen Matewere applauded the organization for the hand rendered saying it will go a long way in improving her life.
Matewere described the opportunity as a milestone in achieving her dreams of being a successful businesswoman.
On the day, people were trained in writing a winning curriculum vitae, writing a business plan and the best routine in approaching God in every day situation.
This was the first training offered by the organization and according to Njala this marks the launch of school of success in improving people’s lives hence there will be more of such trainings.
