Investment in Employment & Entrepreneurship  targeting both female and male youth is critical to ensure Sierra Leone can harness the demographic dividend. Engagement of youth in the formal or non-form sectors will bolster the capacity of the nation to fully utilize their skills and energies. The lack of critical relevant skills limit the capacity of young people to take advantage of existing market conditions. As a pre requisite for economic growth it is key that there is a skilled labour force and convenient working conditions.
