Matebeleland North

Matabeleland North province is one of the ten provinces in Zimbabwe. The province lies on the eastern part of the country and it is mainly dominated by the Ndebele speaking people hence the name Matabeleland which another way of saying Matebele for the Ndebele tribe, but all in all a multiplicity of tribes like BaTonga, Nambya, Nyanja, and Dombe just but to mention a few are also part of the beautiful province.

The province is comprised of 7(seven) districts namely Binga, Hwange, Lupane, Tsholotsho, Bubi, Umguza and Nkayi. These districts are further divided into 13 constituencies and a multiplicity of Wards where YARD happen to have structures from District to Ward level accross the province.

The province is sparcely populated hence a clearly estimate of the youths to those who are not youths ratio is a bid difficult to establish, but the overwhelming response by the youths to be part of YARD family since its inception up to present really tell a obvious story on the nature of youths which the province house. The capital of the province is Lupane District which is just about 180kms from Bulawayo. YARD as an organization seeks mainly to help the province to get out of the effects of marginalization and poverty that has characterised the province in the past years since the independence of the country in 1980. This can only be done through the emancipation and empowerment of the young people who are still energetic so to directly bring about the much needed development in the province.

The organization will seek to work in harmony with all local authorities and respected leaders in the part of the country. YARD also will seek to educate the young people on voting process so that they can be able to participate effectively in being elected or electing leaders or represantatives with capacity in the influencial national decision making boardies in the country. Education for almost everyone especially the young minds will be part of the plans that the organization in the province seeks to tackle, and what will motivate the young people is the fact that 3/4 of the provincial leadership are university graduates so surely speaking from experience and addressing people of almost the same age range guarantee that the youths will understand clearly the objectives of the YARD organization/pressure group. That is all that can be said about the beautiful province in relation to the plans that YARD will seek to achieve which are inevitably going to be a success at the moment.
