Zomba Vocational Training Centre (ZVTC) is a non-profit making, non-partisan entity that was formed in February 2009.

The organization was founded by a group of concerned youth who, at the time, were deeply displeased with the perpetual legacy of marginalization of young people and women in economic development policy and practice in Malawi and Zomba district in particular.

However, With the emergence of a robust civil society, particularly subsequent to democratization of Malawi’s political system, the distraught but resolute youth capitalized on the changing status quo and formed an organization whose mandate was to provide space for youth entrepreneurship, activism,
promote youth and women’s role and visibility in local development and help in the fight against emerging health problems such as HIV and AIDS.

The production of our Strategic Plan will assist Zomba Vocational Training Centre to fully achieve its goals. The plan gives the organization a clear and focused direction for its operations, and captures all planned services to the public.

We believe that this Plan will assist Zomba Vocational Training Centre to provide good services, equally, timely and in an orderly manner to the public for 5 years as planned.
