This study aimed at assessing the role of private sector in reducing youth unemployment
in Urban West of Zanzibar. It was important to conduct this research in Zanzibar and in
Urban West Region, because there was no research of such nature that I know or I am
aware of. Judgmental sampling procedure was employed. A total sample of 137
respondents comprising 124 unemployed youth in both sectors including government
offices, private sector; (formal and informal) 13 officers responsible for youth
development. Data were collected through questionnaires, focus group discussions,
interviews and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version
The study has revealed, the constrains that discouraged youth to be employed in private
sector and these include: lack of education, entrepreneurship, experience, poor
government cooperation, lack of vocational training skills and others, as well as
obstacles that detered the private sector, from contributing to youth unemployment
including lack of capital, skills, land resource, market, finance. It was also found out that
youths were much interested to be employed in the government institutions. Again, the
results show that; to those who were interested to work in private sector prefer to be
employed in companies.
In order to eliminate the problem of youth unemployment, there must be adequate
financial capital, provision of vocational training, possessing land and capital, provision
of entrepreneurship skills, extension of business environment and many other solutions.
