Stanbic urges skills training for youths

STANBIC Bank has called for equipping of young people with skills to help them properly integrate in society.

Speaking in Lusaka yesterday when the bank hosted students from across the country, head of marketing and communication, Kamiza Chikula, said students needed to have life skills imparted in them in order for them to properly integrate into society.

“Once the youth are equipped with necessary skills, they will be able to relate to the aspirations of the country and contribute positively to its development. Equipping young people should not fall on government’s shoulders alone but on the corporate world and community at large. Each student here today comes from a community that has the responsibility of preparing the student for a future role as a leader,” Chikula said.

He said investing in the youth, especially those from underprivileged communities, would have a positive effect on social and economic development.
