For many young people living in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, having a dream is a luxury that many of them cannot afford or allow themselves to have.

Even before COVID-19 made things

worse, many young people did not

finish school, some did not manage to learn to read or write and up to 76% of them did not find work of any kind.

What we do...

Making
a dream
a reality.

 

The first activity that Ubunye does in the Ikamva Lolutsha Programme with  young people in rural communities in the Eastern Cape is

 

ENCOURAGE THEM TO DREAM

Then through the Ikamva Lolutsha Programme, Ubunye uses a combination of training, mentoring and facilitating to ensure that their dreams become a reality.

 

Since April 2021, Ubunye has trained

over 47 young women - assisting them to:

DREAM - BUILD A LIFE PLAN - GET ON TRACK  to making their dreams come true

But often these young people need more than a helping hand to get them on track.

 

They also need 'seed money' to start them off

like travel to that job interview, books for the new catering course or a computer for the internet cafe business they are starting.

Ubunye has started
The DREAMERS' FUND

01

 Ikamva Lolutsha members prepare a Life Plan and submit it to the Dreamers Fund.

02

A team of external and interval assessors then select those who will receive the fund based on their Life Plan and a whole array of agreed criteria. 

03

The successful Ikamva Lolutsha members then receive seed money of up to R3000 at intervals according to their plan.
