In a country with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world and a despondent youth, we need more of young women like Farai more than ever before. Purpose, compassion, and impact are the three words that best define Farai Mubaiwa’s (26) journey as she tries to shape a better Africa through her work in youth development, gender equality, and African growth.
Farai is a partner management lead at Youth Employment Service (YES). YES is a business-led NPO that works in partnership with government and labour to initiate policy changes that promote job creation for the youth. Prior to her association with YES, Farai served as a project manager at The Aurum Institute, a leading African TB and HIV research and implementation institute.
