Why Education?

Education is a major priority in the development of young men and women, not simply because young people are often connected to the education system, but because it is through education that young women and men can be better prepared for life. The personal development of the individual young person, along with the development of local communities and the country as a whole is inextricably linked to the provision of quality, relevant and well-managed education system. The Republican Constitution of Zimbabwe provides for the right to education for all its citizens. Further, the National Youth Policy recognizes and draws from the provision of the Ministry of Education Policy. Despite having the supportive instrument highlighted in the preceding paragraph, a lot of challenges still remain and militate against the promotion of universal education as well as pupil/student retention in school. For instance, the ratio of females to males in the lower primary school grades (1 to 3) is nearly 50:50. However, from grades 4 to 8 16 the ratio begins to drop so much so that in secondary school the male: female ratio is estimated at 72:28 while in university it is estimated to be 74:26. There is therefore, need to lobby for a law that provides for mandatory attendance of primary school education. Human resource development is an important ingredient towards economic growth and development that would help in poverty reduction. Thus, any district ignoring this and failing to invest in the education of its young person’s cannot be serious about regional development and poverty reduction. In order to contribute towards improvement of education situation in Tsholotsho, the Tsholotsho Youth Hub will ensure that periodic review of education curricula for both formal and non-formal sector is undertaken to meet the changing needs of youth in the rapidly changing world and labor market demands in urban and rural areas.
