Help learners find their purpose in South Africa

by The Cross Overs


Our initiate is to help learners from a small mine villages in South Africa discover their true self and purpose in life by providing a privately initiated programme that will be custom made for each pupil. Helping them gain skills for the management of their talents and how they can make an income from it to reduce the dependence on an employer and create a sustainable and independent society which is economically free through God given talents
total goal


The problem is dependence of people on the mining company for employment and as the only source of income in a small mine village called Vaal Reefs, North West Province in South Africa. The company in mining now has been closing off a number of their operations due to the exhaustion of the minerals being mined. In the past years the Company has closed down 9 of 11 operations that left employees without jobs and homeless that affected the economy of the villages around and towns. Now the company


Discovery of an individual's natural talent or original purpose and knowing how to manage it and make an income from it will reduce the dependence on a company for employment. It will redirect young people flocking to a certain area for employment and turn them into employers and creating further job opportunities and exploring the rest of the country. We are more of turning the thing around taking out the mentality of being an employee, rather be an employer creating opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

Developed and empowered leaders who have had an opportunity to discover their naturally given talent or purpose and have developed a skill of managing that talent and making an income from it. Not depending solely on an employer and being able to empower and inspire others to do the same.
