Youth Livelihoods


Train disadvantaged young people and connect them to employment

Why We Partnered

The MasterCard Foundation and Harambee have partnered to broaden the available private sector employment opportunities for young people. This partnership will also expand the job preparation and placement model to serve new growth areas and sectors in South Africa, including job opportunities in small and medium sized enterprises. The project will benefit young people through a Step-Up program that will provide additional numeracy, English language, and communication skills training to enable a broader group of young work-seekers to access jobs through Harambee. The project will also enable Harambee to enhance its management information and database systems to improve tracking of participants and alumni.
