Freeday supports the ‘Skills Development’ project. This project is the result of a collaboration between Net4kids and local partner organization in South Africa, Rhiza
. The project focuses on young people between the ages of 18-35 in Diepsloot. This is a township near Johannesburg in South Africa. In this project, young talent gets vocational training courses that match the demands of the local labor market. This includes training such as financial administration, IT and other entrepreneurial skills like marketing. The training courses increase the chances of finding a job or becoming successful in starting a new business. These new companies also create more employment opportunities in the slums. The development of entrepreneurs and companies takes place in local business hubs. These are business centers with office facilities where the training courses are also given.
At Freeday, we believe that with the support and ownership of the local community we can help to create the ripple effect. More and more people can use their talents and skills. Or are
positively affected or inspired by this project indirectly.
This fits in seamlessly with our mission: Unlock Human Potential.
