When adequate skills are instilled among the youth, employment is generated. Eastleighwood employment programme for youths aims at reducing the high unemployment rate among the youths in Eastleigh community, which if not curbed may lead the youth to engage in all kinds of nefarious acts such as idleness, drugs, promiscuity, robbery, gang involvement among others.
