Namibia’s youth unemployment rate have increased from 34.32% in 2012 to 45.5% in 2018, the fourth highest rate of youth unemployment in Africa. In keeping abreast with Vision 2030, the Namibian University of Science and Technology (NUST) is driven to empower youth to command 21st century skills, in an effort to combat industry skills mismatch and additionally, to groom youth to become job creators rather than job seekers. As such, NUST through NUST FM has partnered with Wadhwani Foundation, whose mission is accelerating economic development in emerging economies through large-scale job creation. The Foundation’s National Entrepreneurship Network and Global Skills Network initiatives are driving job-creation through entrepreneurship, skills development and innovation.
