The fight for representation is a long and arduous one, but it is important that we all understand the gravity of the issue. This project aims to educate young South Africans on this very topic. Through engaging videos, articles, and live streams, they are attempting to bring awareness to one of our country’s biggest problems: youth representation in politics.
What’s the best way to build peace and security in Africa? By empowering young people! In Southern Africa, youth are playing a key role in building peace and stability. We are helping them identify their strengths, training them in soft skills like leadership, negotiation, and conflict resolution, and we’re connecting with them through programs on social media.
We believe that by investing in our youth we can create a better tomorrow for us all. And because each one of us has the power to make a difference, we invite you to join us as we build a future for young people that is filled with opportunity and hope.
Young journalists in Southern Africa need a platform where they can report and get support from across the world. Thanks to this amazing project, they’re getting that support right now, as SANYP takes on a new challenge: covering the 2018 elections in Zimbabwe. Through their Facebook page and videos, SANYP is helping young journalists reporting on the election be more accurate and confident. To learn more about what’s happening in Zimbabwe right now, check out their website or follow them on Facebook!
What does it take to be able to have a successful career in the South African economy today, when the economic growth rate is low and unemployment is high? There are many factors that influence one’s chances of success at work, but one thing that can’t be overlooked is a solid educational background. This is why Southern Africa Youth Project has come up with a plan that will help young people acquire the skills they need to succeed both in school and on the job market.
Through their Reporting and Support program, SASYP offers mentorship, training, and support for young people who want to make something of themselves. By partnering with local NGOs, schools, employers, and government agencies all over South Africa, SASYP gives participants the tools they need to find success in life. Your future depends on it!
