In the words of President Cyril Ramaphosa, the most effective and sustainable way to build an economy is to equip people with the skills and know-how to drive it.
South Africa’s youth embodies the world’s future skills, yet a dire need for skills development and opportunity beckons.
Let us remember that yes, the youth unemployment rate and job statistics are staggering. However, South Africa is a nation known for defying the odds and rising up to create change, together.
Our story is woven into the very fabric of South Africa. By collaborating with redAcademy, the Foundation propels a movement already in motion, amplifying impact and touching the lives of youth across our nation. The success stories of our graduates are testament to possibility, showcasing their successful journeys from challenges to permanent careers in the tech sector and to expand into various other industries too.
Corporate SA and stakeholders share the responsibility to shift this paradigm. By nurturing careers, they catalyse economic growth, shaping a legacy that echoes through generations.
