Youth Empowerment through Skills

As we wrap up 2022, it's a great opportunitiy to look back at the successes of the Social Entrepreneurship and Income Generation Projects over the last 12 months. Without a doubt, 2022, has been another year of growth for the projects, with a greater number of young men completing the theoretical and practical aspects of the Kwakha Indvodza project than ever before. 

  • Through the collaboration with existing KI projects, partners and community structures, KI successfully implemented 7 five-day "Learn2Earn" courses (159 participants) and 8 skills developments trainings (79 participants) in different communities around Eswatini. 
  • Through these partnerships, these needy communities received the products (tables, bookshelves, other furniture) produced by participants during the skills development trainings.
  • 98% of our participants reported that they found our courses "helpful" or "very helpful" in their future careers. 
  • As well as your valuable support, KI's Apprenticeship Programme received support from the British High Commission, Solon Foundation, UNDP, Swaziland Schools Project and Swaziland Charitable Trust to repair another 4,514 desks in 33 schools across the country, taking our cumilative total to over 11,000 school desks repaired since 2018!
  • Apprentice carpenters and welders from Ludzeludze community received a tender worth E13, 327.00 (approx 750 USD) for desks repairs at Ludzeludze Primary School to repair a total of 44 desks.

Despite these successes, the situation in Eswatini (Swaziland) remains dire. Social unrest, very high unemployment, severe inequalities and a weak economic forecast mean that many young people face hardship everyday. Your generous donations, no matter how large or small, continue to make the difference in a young man's future and through his income, the future of his entire family.

Thank you.
