Southern Africa Youth Project in 2014 launched a 5-year entrepreneurial development program for 180 girls in 3 schools of Diepsloot Community.


We have partnered with Rabasotho Combined, Diepsloot Secondary and Itirele Secondary School in Diepsloot. The aim of this project was to provide these girls with entrepreneurial skills, educational support, and leadership development


Southern Africa Youth Project launched this project with an aim to:

  • Increase the girl’s entrepreneurial interest whilst in high school
  • Ensure that girls lead community development initiatives for social change
  • Engage girls in leadership development initiatives founded and facilitated by themselves
  • ┬áProvide psychosocial support for these girls
  • Provide sexual education on violence in schools for the girls and boys as catalysts for change


Southern Africa Youth Project is in its 4 year phase of this project where girls are now empowered to change the way they think about themselves
