What’s happening now
Current Stage on the Implementation of the project In November 2013, the Lusaka City Council held a full Council Meeting held where it was resolved to recommend that Lusaka City Council (LCC) and Youth Activism for Change (YAfC) enter into an MoU for the construction of the Youth Resource Center in Matero Township.
We ran into some difficulties with regard to land for construction which delayed the project. However, after some time we managed to overcome these difficulties and the contruction could proceed.
Zambia’s economy has been in a very bad state. There has been an unprecedented increase in prices of goods and services. The local currency has lost its value against international currencies thereby giving a strain on our budget.
But we are not giving up. And we are following our goal!
