In pure impact terms the results of the Ivory Park branch of IkamvaYouth are impressive but don’t take our word for it, here is a summary of the results from last year. Any which way you look at it the demonstrated impact speaks for itself and a big shout out must go to Hatch and the Transnet Foundation for helping make this a reality.
More importantly, all of our learners have gained access to post-school opportunities.
The Ivory Park branch of IkamvaYouth once more demonstrates the effectiveness and replicability of the IkamvaYouth model. Further confirmation and recognition came yesterday from the Minister of Basic Education as she mentioned IkamvaYouth in her 2011/2012 Budget Speech to parliament. Ms Angie Motshekga had this to say, “The non-governmental organisations (NGOs) sector has continued to play a very important role in education. We were fascinated by initiatives of young people supporting other young people, like IkamvaYouth”. Full speech here
The future is bright for IkamvaYouth because the future is in our hands. Ikamva Lisezandleni Zethu.
