In a world where the challenges facing our youth can often seem insurmountable, there are still reasons for hope in South Africa. Here is a story of resilience, determination, and the transformative power of education and opportunity. We share the remarkable success of the Fedgroup Iteke Learnership Programme, which has changed lives and set an example for corporate South Africa.
LIVES ARE CHANGED WHEN BUSINESS GETS INVOLVED
THE SUCCESS OF LEARNERSHIP PROGRAMMES
This groundbreaking programme was designed for the beneficiaries of the Fedgroup Beneficiary Care Fund, targeting young people who have lost a parent. These youth face formidable obstacles as they transition from matriculation to post-school education and, eventually, the workforce.
The Iteke Learnership Programme was created to be a guiding light on their journey. It is a testament to the power of collaboration, education, and opportunity. It shows that even in the face of adversity, young people can rise above their circumstances and achieve greatness. It reminds us that, as corporate entities, we have the responsibility and the privilege to be instruments of change and hope in the lives of those who need it most.
As we celebrate this success, we are reminded that there are countless untold stories of young individuals across South Africa who, with the right support, can turn adversity into opportunity. It is time for all of us, as business leaders and community members, to come together and create more success stories like the Iteke Learnership Programme.
