The Center for Development Partnership (CDP) a service provider to the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP) has launched a bamboo craft exhibition and its first graduation ceremony.

The CDP is a non-governmental organization that mobilizes and trains young people on how to use local resources such as bamboo to earn their livelihoods.

The training includes processing and making of several products like bags, purses, footwear and many bamboo charcoal products.

The national coordinator of the NYEP Mr. Abuga  Pele said the bamboo craft production and other projects implemented in partnership  with the CDP is in line with the new strategic plan of the NYEP which focuses on the development and promotion of entrepreneurial skills and sustainable micro business ventures among the youth.

The project is a multi edged instrument that provides environmental protection through the cultivation of bamboo plantations and also empowering the youth with skills training as well as creating employment to improve upon livelihoods of individuals and the communities.
