KISII Authentic Henrik Sedin Jersey , Kenya, March 12 (Xinhua) -- Nurturing talents in youths is widely conceptualized as an alternative way of tackling unemployment in Kenya.

But commercializing their talents to earn a living is an equally different aspect pointing to either securing a job or getting into self-employment.

To pool together and utilise their specific capabilities for the interest of generating income is the approach youth in Kenya's Nyanza region have now adopted to curb joblessness.

"No one joins our group without a talent. You must be able to offer something to help yourself and the group," Clive Kazungu, the art curator for Tabaka Scouts Arts told Xinhua on Saturday.

The group, based in Kisii in Western Kenya Authentic Daniel Sedin Jersey , has been in existence for the past four years and has so far attracted 35 members below the age of 35. Talents in beading, basketry, designing, carving among others give one a ticket to the group.

The group is mainly involved in making sculptures, necklaces Authentic Brock Boeser Jersey , bangles and portraits from the soapstone.

Producing these products involve intense and detailed thinking, requiring the input of each of the members. The least expensive piece goes for one dollar which could be simple in detail.

"We have an enterprise mind and we are focused on how we can improve our lives through making money from our talents. It is therefore important that each member is devoted to bringing out the best in him," noted the group's art curator.

Kazungu says encouraging laziness among the youth is only detrimental to Kenya's economy and that is why they are strict on identifying and sharpening talents in each of the members.

"The effort involved, design and details put in the ware determine its price. It can take a whole year to come up with a complete and marketable product," explained Kazungu.

While they are currently selling to hotels Bo Horvat Jersey , homes, museums and art shops, the group is also exploring markets in U.S., Denmark and France. They also hope they could penetrate the Asian market.

"We get trainings from different government and non-governmental organizations on marketing, networking and honing our talents. This is helpful because none of us wants to be poor with rich resources resting with us Henrik Sedin Jersey ," said Kazungu.

According to him, the youths must take an initiative to discover their talents and be aggressive to find a platform for utilizing them.

The 2016 World Bank report on the state of youth unemployment in Kenya ranks the country among those with the highest rates of jobless citizens between the ages of 15 and 24.

The report said that unemployment for the age group stands at 17 percent ,which is almost three times higher than in the neiboring countries such as Uganda and Tanzania.

Earlier in the year, findings by the Aga Khan University also indicated a 55 percent unemployment level for the below 35 Kenyans, manifesting a worrying socio-economic status of Kenyan youths.

But Kazungu believes the youth can fight unemployment if they commercialize their talents.

"I believe youth have very unique talents which they can exploit to make a living. However Daniel Sedin Jersey , we have a problem of youth waiting and expecting a miracle to happen. It is not possible unless they stand up for their abilities and capabilities to be discovered," he noted.

Professor Tom Nyamache, an economist, says the informal sector offers youth opportunities to create employment for themselves amidst changing dynamics in the job sector.

"It remains a challenge to absorb all the skilled manpower in the country. Employers are also widening the scope of skills and knowledge needed to secure employment and therefore the youth need to find alternative ways of creating jobs for themselves," he said.

It is necessary for youth to acquire technical skills currently in short supply in the country to gain leverage in search for employment Brock Boeser Jersey , says the scholar.

His opinion rhymes with World Bank's recognition of scarcity of skills as major factor leaving many youths jobless.

International Monetary Fund has also warned of expected increase of unemployment levels in the world due to rising population pitting against a slowed economic growth.

In Kenya, for instance, some companies have been forced to retrench their workforce and others to freeze employment due to dwindled profits and gloomy business environment.

The government has set Youth Enterprise Fund and Uwezo Fund available for youths in groups to access loans and start income generating activities. This is part of the efforts made in Kenya to empower both female and male youths.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- The United States has violated the economic and legal rights of its citizens to an alarming degree, the CATO Institute said in a new report.

According to the Washington-based think tank's newly published Human Rights Index Cheap Canucks Hats , the United States' ranking fell from the 17th place in 2008 to the 20th in 2012, declining in indicators of rule of law and economic freedom, among others.

"The U.S. performance is worrisome and shows the United States can no longer claim to be the leading bastion of liberty in the world," said Ian Vasquez, co-author of the report.

According to Vasquez Cheap Canucks T-Shirts , in addition to the expansion of regulatory state and drop in economic freedom, the war on terror, the war on drugs and the erosion of property rights have all likely contributed to the United States' decline.

The United States has recently seen waves of domestic protests against and worldwide condemnation of its human rights violations as cases of police shooting dead African Americans, most notably the one in Ferguson, Missouri Cheap Canucks Hoodies , happened frequently in the country.

Meanwhile, the White House's mass surveillance practices targeting civilian, corporate as well as foreign government communication have also triggered international resentments.
