SAYPRO’s beneficiary Mphiwa Rangata shares the impact made by our programs.

Since I have been at SAYPRO I have been taught a lot about Cashier (Point Of Sale), Waiter, Customer service, Skills to succeed (S2S) and Computer literacy. I have learned many essential reasons for being organized and treating others with respect. To me SAYPRO is the most important organisation for people that struggling to find a job. Things that I have learned now are things I am going to rely on in the future to find a job.


I like this organisation because they accept people who know less and build them to a better future. There are so many challenges in life but for me to overcome them I need to start by believing in myself I came at SAYPRO with nothing and left with knowledge and skills. I was so committed and I have some results now.


I have learned to be patient, treat people with love and to communicate well with other people. I have worked hard and focused on goals I need to achieve, I need to stay positive and I must not take peoples complaints personally.


ALL THANKS TO SAYPRO FOR MY ACHIEVEMENTS AND THE CERTIFICATES THAT THEY HAVE GIVEN ME.

Southern Africa Youth Project would like to edge everyone to make every second of this day count.

Southern Africa Youth Project is a Youth development institution that strives to change the way young people in rural areas and townships thinks about themselves. We do this by up-skilling them to recognize and utilize the opportunities that are around them.

This is done through the following interventions

Educational Support for the girl child
Capacity building for the unemployed youth
and finally linking unemployed youth into jobs and educational opportunities
On the demand side, Southern Africa Youth Project SayPro prepares first-time employees for work, providing a pool of skilled workers for businesses and minimising the risks associated with employing first-time job seekers.

Moreover, it has built a scalable model to source, screen, and we match high volumes of young people based on their personal strengths, instead of simply looking at their educational history or other formal qualifications, and it can do this for multiple organisations at the same time.

Southern Africa Youth Project SayPro also assists job seekers in identifying which of their skills may need improvement and offers them help. On the supply side, SayPro sources and selects young people who exhibit demonstrated potential but who have gaps in work readiness, and puts them through an intensive bridging program that helps them cultivate the skills and personal development needed for success in the workplace.

They are then placed in preselected, permanent, formal-sector jobs. SayPro also addresses the resource constraints and lack of social networks that young people face when looking for work. It deploys recruiters to the areas of greatest deprivation, for example, and creates application processes that use accessible technology, such as cell phones, to reduce the costs of applying for a job.

Southern Africa Youth Project is a Youth development institution that strives to change the way young people in rural areas and townships thinks about themselves. We do this by up-skilling them to recognize and utilize the opportunities that are around them.

This is done through the following interventions

  1. Educational Support for the girl child
  2. Capacity building for the unemployed youth
  3. and finally linking unemployed youth into jobs and educational opportunities

On the demand side, Southern Africa Youth Project SayPro prepares first-time employees for work, providing a pool of skilled workers for businesses and minimising the risks associated with employing first-time job seekers.

Moreover, it has built a scalable model to source, screen, and we match high volumes of young people based on their personal strengths, instead of simply looking at their educational history or other formal qualifications, and it can do this for multiple organisations at the same time.

Southern Africa Youth Project SayPro also assists job seekers in identifying which of their skills may need improvement and offers them help. On the supply side, SayPro sources and selects young people who exhibit demonstrated potential but who have gaps in work readiness, and puts them through an intensive bridging program that helps them cultivate the skills and personal development needed for success in the workplace.

They are then placed in preselected, permanent, formal-sector jobs. SayPro also addresses the resource constraints and lack of social networks that young people face when looking for work. It deploys recruiters to the areas of greatest deprivation, for example, and creates application processes that use accessible technology, such as cell phones, to reduce the costs of applying for a job.

On the supply side, SayPro sources and selects young people who exhibit demonstrated potential but who have gaps in work readiness, and puts them through an intensive bridging program that helps them cultivate the skills and personal development needed for success in the workplace.

Here are some low income that are available to the youth in townships of South Africa.

Townships like Diepsloot often lack opportunities for young people from FETs and Technical training institutions which may help alleviate poverty through the skills provision and job creation.

These are some of the  jobs available to the youth of Diepsloot , security and domestic are the most prevalent kind of jobs available to the youth and yet there are a lot of people looking for those jobs furthermore construction work is dominant around this area.

One other challenge that young people are often faced with when looking for jobs is experience and of which is a disadvantage, because most young people don’t have experience.
