It’s part of Mastercard Foundation’s ambitious commitment to enable 30 million African youth, especially young women, to secure dignified and fulfilling work by 2030.
Hanga Ahazaza, meaning “create the future” in Kinyarwanda, will equip young men and women with the skills employers need, by improving the quality and relevance of training in the tourism and hospitality sector.
It will also support entrepreneurs by expanding access to financial services and business development skills training, enabling small businesses to grow.
The initiative is a consortium of partners from the education, development, financial services, and private sectors. Working together, they will support: young job-seekers; small businesses and entrepreneurs; and training institutions, associations, and government entities related to tourism and hospitality
