RCE Minna and RCE Grand Rapids organize the first Youth Virtual Conference in Africa

RCE Minna and RCE Grand Rapids organize the first Youth Virtual Conference (YVC) in Africa on youth empowerment and vocational training.

Incoherent youth programmes and little funding have added to the urgency for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programmes in this region.
