With poor education being one of the main reasons behind the unemployment crisis facing South Africa today, many organisations and individuals are doing their best to find practical solutions in terms of overcoming this hurdle.
Since the internet came into play, there has been so much information out there just waiting to be consumed. Unfortunately, countless South Africans – and those who need it most, more often than not – simply don’t have the means to access to it.
Digital learning in South Africa has the potential to solve numerous problems, which is why organisations like SA Teen Entrepreneur are doing everything possible to turn it into a reality. We believe that not only can digital learning help to improve education, but it can also help to inspire and empower young entrepreneurs – some of whom are just as passionate about bringing digital learning into the townships as we are!
Take 19 year old UWC student, Sibulele Sijaji, for example. This budding entrepreneur has already opened the doors of his own business called Hood Un-Wired which seeks to improve internet access within South African townships.
Here at SA Teen Entrepreneur, we are focused on providing our country’s youth with guidance and information that will help them to take their big ideas to the next level. If you would like to be a part of our mission, either as a teen entrepreneur, parent supporter or investor, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
“There’s no committee that says, ‘This is the type of person who can change the world – and you can’t.’ Realizing that anyone can do it is the first step. The next step is figuring out how you’re going to do it.” – Adora Svitak, Flying Fingers
