Summary

This project will be instrumental in breaking the vicious poverty cycle that affects all those living in South African townships by empowering youth to utilize different life skills that will enable them to become productive citizens in society.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Due to circumstances outside of their control, many families are living in absolute poverty in under resourced areas of South Africa. High unemployment makes it difficult for families to meet their most basic needs causing a myriad of negative impacts due to the breakdown in family structures. Many families also do not have adequate access to resources such as education and health care. Among the challenges is the fact that youth, the future, are not provided with he necessary tools for growth.

How will this project solve this problem?

We provide services to youth and their families that they would not otherwise have access to such as nutrition, education programs, life skills, and essential computer skills to enter the job field. Through our services we hope to see measurable improvement in the youth unemployment rate. Our Youth Development programs have the added benefit of keeping our children off the streets, ensuring that they are safe and preventing them from becoming involved in harmful or illegal activities.

Potential Long Term Impact

We currently help 5,742 youth beneficiaries break the poverty cycle by proving them with the tools for growth and the necessary skills to enter the job market. In this specific project we are focusing on 400 youth who attend our community centers. They will not only become self sufficient, but they will also be able to pass down their knowledge and skills for the development of their own children and families, thus creating a more sustainable impact on communities and the economy.
