Economic Empowerment

With unemployment rates reaching well over 40% in the South African communities we serve, launching strategic microenterprises with well-trained leadership is essential to economic growth and community sustainability.

Our Economic Empowerment Program is holistic and multifaceted. We equip young leaders with math and financial literacy, business aptitude, and trade skills. We support innovative ideas and empower students to pioneer businesses that provide long-term earnings for their families, employment for others, and vital community growth. We also run a microenterprise incubator, launching self-sustaining hair salons and handyman businesses.
