Agripeneurship Programme Launch
In February, our Urban Agripreneurship programme launched at both our
Diepsloot and Orange Farm centres with a total of 35 participants registered,
the majority of whom are women. As part of our continued focus on food
security and entrepreneurship, this programme speaks to both, combining
small-scale farming with business education in the urban agricultural space.
We are excited to see how our young Agripreneurs progress and carve out
sustainable ways to generate their own income and sustain livelihoods!
Our Digital Commons are coming to life
The Digital Commons at our Uthando centre has been taking shape and is
almost complete. This space promises to be a place of inspired learning and
digital forward-thinking. The beautiful colors will compliment a fully packed
digital and physical library where our youth can continue to grow and nurture
their education through both independent and facilitated learning.
Technology Transforms Lives
As part of our focus on technology and digitisation, we have launched an
exciting new programme, Technology Transforms Lives. A cohort of young
people have just started their NQF level 4 IT training. In addition to the formal
accreditation, each young person will be paired with a mentor from the tech
industry who will provide career advice and guide them through the content of
their coursework. This is our first mentorship programme and we are looking
forward to seeing the results and whether we can transfer the model to other
