The Zombo Mwa Youth Summit slated for January 6 2024, at Paidha Cultural Centre in Paidha Town Council Zombo District, has been organised by Youth activists of Zombo Mwa Forum, a Whatsapp advocacy platform.

Premised on the theme, “Youths in business and leadership”, the summit is purposely meant to compel Youths to adapt to self-employment opportunities which was a resolution passed in the previous first summit that tackled unemployment and underemployment among the youth, these arrays of hope are much needed to harness the productivity of the young people amidst their deadening much sought after aspirations.
