The Ministry of Sport, Youth and National Service, through its subsidiaries, the National Youth Service and National Youth Council have availed N$ 1 million to set up greenhouses for horticultural production in all 14 regions of the country. In an interview with the Namibia press agency, NYS manager for employment creation, Mirjam Iyambo, said that the aim is to address unemployment among the youth, improve their livelihoods, keep them busy and away from the streets, and to improve food security. She explained that the NYS and NYC expect to complete setting up the green scheme structures by the end of October this year in all regions, and that so far this has already been done in the Khomas, Omaheke, and Hardap regions.
