ORIBI Village Women in Business Programme

Grade 11 girls from our IkamvaYouth Nyanga branch in Cape Town participated in their second instalment of the Oribi Girls in Business programme. The showcase which started in 2022 is an exclusive gathering designed for girls to present their social business ideas, receive participation certificates, and potentially secure grants for their projects. The branch had two groups who made it to pitch day, one group achieved first position with R16 000 to fund their business idea and the second group received R8 000. These learners earned certificates which included certificates for portraying Leadership Skills. Congratulations on the outstanding achievement girls!

EhWoza! Learner Doccie Programme

As we celebrate Women’s Month this August, we acknowledge the struggles that women face every day. As part of our on-going partnership with EhWoza! Grade 11 learners from our IkamvaYouth Makhaza Branch in Khayelitsha wrote, shot and edited a learner documentary called OUR SILENCE IS LOUD which highlights the prevalent issue of gender-based violence in South Africa. Watch the documentary here.

 

­Pathways To Information Event

In today’s fast-paced and interconnected world access to accurate and reliable information is crucial, especially for the younger generation. Recognising this need, IkamvaYouth in partnership with The Bertha Centre, Huruma Bantfu and Harambee Youth co-hosted a Pathways To Information event in Alexandra. The aim was to equip youth in Alexandra with much-needed skills, tools and resources that was not previously accessible to them, like CV creation, so that they may be able to find employment as well as tertiary education opportunities.

 

­Masiphumelele: Through The Struggles We Rise

Grade 10 and 11 learners from our IkamvaYouth Masiphumelele Branch contributed to a story-telling project to recapture the beauty of the Masiphumelele community. The project titled, Masiphumelele: Through The Struggles We Rise is a collaboration between IkamvaYouth and Stellenbosch Academy of Photography and Design. Learners were tasked with writing positive stories about their daily lives in Masiphumelele which will accompany the images taken by the Stellenbosch students.

­­Career Guidance Day at PAWS

Learners, tutors and staff at our IkamvaYouth Ikageng Branch in the North West visited the Potchefstroom Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). The facilitators of PAWS gave the Ikamvanites the opportunity to help carry out duties for the day, such as feeding animals and demonstrating the animal rescue procedure. The second element of the day was centred on career guidance. The animal care worker educated learners on the different careers in the field of caring for animals and its science. Interested learners had the opportunity to align the subjects they would need in order to study these careers at university.

 

­National Women's Month

In celebration of National Women’s Month IkamvaYouth would like to celebrate the resolve and courage of women which has continued to inspire us to create a better world for all. During the month of August, we celebrate women who continue to affect change. From the powerful force of IkamvaYouth, to all amazing women across the world. Remain resolute, and make a mark in your generation. Happy Women's Month!
