About 11,000 jobs created under the 'Projapron' program

Within the framework of the Youth Program of Support to the National Production (Projapron) more than 11 thousand new jobs were created, which were divided by the municipalities of Huambo. Each municipality of that province managed to create about 1000 new jobs.

Projapron aims to help young people take a more active role in agricultural production. The increase in production will thus help fight hunger and poverty.

It will also help foster entrepreneurship and self-employment among the country's youth.

Isaías Kalunga, president of the National Youth Council (CNJ), quoted by Angop, explained that the CNJ will help the Municipal Youth Councils (CMJ) to develop the agricultural sector. For this, the CNJ will provide fertilizers and other work utensils to advance the farm.

As for the spaces to be explored, these must be made available by local governments, he said.

The president of the CNJ, who was speaking this Monday on the sidelines of a visit to the Catumbo II farm, also left a suggestion: that young brigades be created to support national production and thus help reduce and combat juvenile delinquency.

The owner of the farm, Domingos David, took the opportunity to say that a bet should be made on the training of young people, especially with regard to the techniques to be used to properly handle agricultural utensils.

The farm, located in the commune of Chinhama, Huambo, currently employs more than 122 young people, who are effective, and about 100 possible young people coming from the commune of Chinhama, Sambo and Samboto.
