Challenge

The youth in Groblershoop and Tweeling (South Africa) have little hope of breaking out of poverty and its systemic issues. The farm towns these youth live in are facing a food crisis as the average age of a farmer is 56-62. GoodYear addresses this crisis by taking in a select group with leadership qualities to coach them for 1 year (with skills and personal mentorship) to become change agents in their home towns as well as to later place some on farms to raise a new generation of food producers.

Solution

Students receive various formal training courses on topics such as problem solving, entrepreneurship, healthy relationships, personal financial management, communication, executing a vision, farm-related skills (eg planting & harvesting) etc. They are also taught, in practice, how to teach others what they learn and do so through programs in the school and with local children. Through this 1 year curriculum, they learn to think like a leader and are equipped to change their circle of influence.

Long-Term Impact

GoodYear serves 20-30 students per year, those students reach another 300+ school going children during that year. Problem behaviors in school (bullying, cheating etc) have dramatically reportedly reduced in this town, Also, the GoodYear students go study and land up working in places of influence. A generation of young people that would have become an economic burden now contribute to the market place & agricultural sector and break the cycle of poverty in Tweeling & Grobelershoop, South Africa
