E E E S A Y Entrepreneurial and Environmental Empowerment for South African Youth


Live the Legacy: Towards A Socio-Economically Empowered Youth

In the spirit of Youth Month the EEESAY team celebrated what it means to be a young entrepreneur by showcasing learners’ success in business on social media. Youth month celebrations concluded with a Youth Advisory Group Meeting in Eastern Cape. Thirteen (13) Learners from St Charles Sojola High School, Ncedolwethu Senior Secondary School and Sobantu Senior Secondary School in Chris Hani district in Eastern Cape also gathered to give feedback on their experience in the EEESAY Programme so far. Learners spoke about what it means to be a young entrepreneur. All learners agreed that being a young entrepreneur means having courage to start a business, being willing to take risks and being innovative in the process. We would like to congratulate all the learners who were part of this discussion for representing the voice of the EEESAY youth and giving the EEESAY Team useful feedback to ensure the programme is, - and remains - YOUTH-centred. We are listening! #CelebratingSAYouth

“ This programme creates a path for the nation; it gives good quality training and encourages us to be successful. It provides methods on how we can be better entrepreneurs and encourages us that failing is not the end of the world. “The country is facing a challenge of lack of employment. EEESAY teaches us how we can start our own business using available resources e.g. recycling and gardening. It enables us to open our minds that everything is possible .” - YAG Eastern Cape, 2018 The Eastern Cape Youth Advisory Group brought together learners from Ncendolwethu SS, St Charles Sojola HS and Sobantu Secondary School

KwaZulu Natal Youth, you are next! We’re looking forward to having an informative session with KZN learners in July – August 2018!
