ENTREPRENEURIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL EMPOWERMENT FOR SOUTH AFRICAN YOUTH

SEPTEMBER 2018

My Voice, My Action This year has been about school business teams expanding on the business ideas they put into action in 2017. The annual report from last year was used to further develop the business plan in 2018 – just as this year’s annual report will help the teams further refine their plans for 2019.

The EEESAY project has reached 1156 learners across the four districts, giving these young people the opportunity to develop skills and experience the need to be leaders of the future. The achievements of the EEESAY team are exactly that – a team effort. The successes achieved would not be possible without the support of the Department of Education, who give ongoing support, guidance and engagement. The project would not exist without the commitment of organisations who have invested in the project’s success. The EEESAY team and schools say a huge thank you to: • The European Community,

I’ve also learned that the biggest lessons came from my biggest mistakes. Gurbaksh Chahal, founder of RadiumOne
