South Africa + awesome youth + education + business skills; the only thing missing is you!
Inkululeko will be running a business skills program for learners in South Africa that teaches middle/high school students the basics of business principles as well as how to implement these principles in their own community. This course would be delivered online over 15 sessions. We are hoping to have UB students assist us with the editing and refining the curriculum as well as delivering it in 2022.
What We Do
A Department of Basic Education report shows that in South Africa less than a third of students finish grade 12 by the age of 18.
We contribute to changing this in the new South Africa by meeting tomorrow’s leaders, where they’re at, today. We offer free tutoring, access to computers and the internet, transportation, exam prep, a library of text books and regular books (and snacks too!) to young people beginning in grade eight and remain with them through grade 12. We also have a social enterprise unit to support students with an entrepreneurial zeal.
There are many customizable possibilities for what your project outcome could be. Based on which project best fits with your interest and skills, ELN staff can help you come up with a fitting project outcome.
