Chiyedza Nyahuye is a vibrant young woman from Zimbabwe who is passionate about youth employment creation as a strategy to link peace building with economic development in African countries. Through Envision Zimbabwe Women’s Trust, Chiyedza has been co-creating a curriculum Community Building and Life Skills that equip out of school, unemployed youth with conflict resolution and peace building skills.

Chiyedza also utilises theatre games, exercises and life skills as tools for healing and self development with vulnerable traumatized youth to find ways to heal and work to transform their communities to be healthier, stronger, respectful and loving of both genders.

Ms. Nyahuye is a graduate of Li Po Chun United World College, Hong Kong China, where she experienced a priceless international baccalaureate program that brought students from 80+ countries to engage in promoting cultural exchange and international understanding. Having then gone on to Macalester College ( BA in International Development Studies) and Hubert Humphrey Institute for Public Affairs, University of Minnesota ( MA in Public Policy, Public Health) in the United States, she returned home in 2004 with a mission to contribute to rebuilding her country. Chiyedza is now focusing on promoting entrepreneurial ventures as a means of creating eco-friendly businesses and employment opportunities that will harness the dynamic, powerful, creative energies of the youth of Zimbabwe let alone the continent of Africa.
