The unemployment rate in South Africa is 25% (Statistics South Africa, 2015).
Without access to skills training, people are trapped in a cycle of unemployment and poverty, with little hope for their future.
The Effects of the Skills Shortage
Our Commitment: To equip people to transition towards self-reliance through skills development
Empowering people to rise above poverty
Sozo is dedicated providing opportunities for skills development, where community members can learn new trades and improve upon existing knowledge. This empowers people with the tools necessary to generate an income, and rise above poverty.
Equipping people with practical skills
A shortage of skills remains a major crisis in the South Africa workplace. That’s why we provide skills training within the community itself, and equip community members with practical skills that can help them secure a decent job and improve their quality of life.
Our skills projects incorporate an element of experiential learning, such as long-term internships, hands-on workshops and in-depth training. We also partner with local businesses in the area, all of which ensures participants are equipped with the knowledge they need to thrive in the workplace.
