The South African Problem
There are more young South Africans WITHOUT jobs than there are with.
Unemployment in South Africa = 7.1 million people (30.1%). Youth, aged 15-24, are the most vulnerable in the South African Labour Market.
Currently 59% of this age group is unemployed. BUT, we believe there is a solution. We teach young people not to rely on government and big business to give them employment opportunities – we teach them to CREATE their own!
