Why we exist

South Africa’s unemployment challenges relate primarily to the legacy of apartheid and the country’s poor economic growth rate. South Africa’s job crisis is at an all time high. The disconnect between individuals looking for jobs and opportunities keeps widening. If the youth fail to get jobs, this can result in lifelong poverty extending to the future generations. Solving youth unemployment is therefore critical to reduce poverty and inequality, and to help young people improve their quality of life.
