Business magnates who lead the Affirmative Action Group (AAG) on Saturday opened up to Chinhoyi University students on how they have climbed up the ladder, in an interface empowerment meeting that will see the group touring other tertiary institutions.
Students also took turns to emphasise the importance of being empowered to run their own businesses to enable them to tackle their day to day problems.
“We want AAG to teach us to make our own money so that we can address our problems. Right now our parents are struggling to pay tuition for us to continue learning. As a result, many students are dropping out of school and may fail to continue with their education. If we are empowered, we can be able to pay for our own education and lower the rate of those who are dropping out,” said a student only identified as Sandra.
