Via Systems Analysis

Implemented in partnership with the International Youth Foundation (IYF) and the Mastercard Foundation, Via: Pathways to Work improves economic opportunities for underserved youth in Mozambique through sustainable changes in the technical and vocational training (TVET) and entrepreneurship system. In addition to the 10,000 youth reached during the initiative’s five years, the Via legacy will be in the systemic changes made at the institutional level and across an array of youth training and support service providers, leading to large numbers of youth benefiting from these advances over time.

In 2017, IYF commissioned MarketShare Associates to lead research in Mozambique and Tanzania on both the challenges the TVET systems face creating skilled graduates and jobs for young people, and the opportunities where Via can work with system actors to support a TVET system that is focused on youth employability. The research summaries presented here highlights main findings as a guide to action for key actors in the TVET systems in Mozambique and Tanzania.
