Influence of Community on Youth Transferable Skills in Livelihood Development Youth in Action: Malawi and Uganda

Youth in Action is a six-year youth livelihood program, in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation, YiA aims to improve the socio-economic status of 40,000 out-of-school young people in rural Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ethiopia, Malawi, and Uganda. Through the development of youth’s foundational skills (literacy, numeracy, and financial literacy), transferable life skills and entrepreneurship skills, they are empowered to make informed pathway choices for the future.

This brief presents summary findings from two Save-University Partnership for Education Research fellowship studies in Malawi and Uganda. These studies sought to contextualize the developmental assets survey by investigating how community members facilitate development and use transferable skills in youth livelihood development.
