Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Due to the high rate of poverty as a result of unemployment and the pandemic in Africa, the standard of living, social and economic growth are slow or even stagnant. To reduce the high rate of poverty and the unemployment of the youths, we are giving them an opportunity to use their skills to create a more suitable life. Thus AYT programme is giving innovative youths the opportunity to come out with their creativity which will include local Invented machines, Equipments, projects etc these inventions will then be further supervised and improved by the students through trainings and mentorship. By encouraging these youths, it will reduce the unemployment rate, and as exhibitions will be carried out for sale of these inventions, the money realized will be used to support their businesses upon graduation to enable them improve their standard of living as well create more employment opportunities to others. Exhibitions to showcase the inventions, performance of the students in the AYT programme will be carried out 6-1 year base on the department to be exhibited. For the inventors pavilion exhibitions are carried out every year.
