With an increasing number of scarce skills in South Africa, we took an initiative to host Career Guidances annually. This helps correctly channelling our youth to the right careers. This, in a long run, will also help South Africa minimize the number of school leavers and unemployed graduates.
RSA stats shows that our unemployment rate increases by at least 0.1% every 6 months (this refers to stats released by Stat SA showing that in April 2019 RSA was on 29%, 6 months later it's on 29.1%) an increasing number of of school leavers also affects these stats. Unconfirmed stats shows that 60% of unemployed youth do not have grade 12 (high school diploma) and our organization focuses in those youth members also, decreasing the level of illiteracy in South Africa. Following our Career Guidances we use those stats and data captured from the event to empower relevant people, youth and AET graduates in this case, with skills that they use to make a living. We need funding to get crowd pullers, buy/hire a marquee, buy prizes for top students and educators for each year (especially focusing on Maths and Science), T-shirts and printing. Estimated budget of R300 000 ($20 000)per annum
