Many young people have insufficient skills relevant to helping them to find employment. This not only results in high unemployment for young people, but also means that the economy cannot grow as fast without the talent of young people.
Schools for Life promotes group debate and participation, as well as training in vocational skills, nurturing curiosity, equality and an entrepreneurial spirit; helping children to reach their full potential and giving them the best possible preparation for the future.
Small loans and business management training for parents and carers of children also help to ensure project sustainability. Income generation programmes at the schools, including Food Forests, tuck shops, and a maize grinding mill help to increase sustainability and teach children the importance of sustainability and valuable business skills.
