Our Entrepreneurial and Environmental Empowerment for South Africa’s Youth (EEESAY) project started in December 2016 with a grant from EuropeAid. EEESAY aims to empower 6,050 youth in KwaZulu Natal and Eastern Cape provinces with the competencies and attitudes to succeed in school, the workplace or in their own business. Working with the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA),  Business World Development Trust and the provincial education offices of Kwa Zulu Natal and Eastern Cape we are providing intensive support to student and teacher teams in 40 low-resource schools over 3 years.

EEESAY is supported by EuropeAid.

The School Enterprise Challenge South Africa programme was launched in 2014 in Kwa Zulu Natal. In 2016, more than 260 student entrepreneurs and 70 teachers directly benefitted from training, step-by-step resources and weekly support to plan, run and develop school businesses. Student entrepreneurs increased their exam pass rates from 38% to 67%. The programme aims to engage more schools every year and will also continue support for EEESAY schools beyond the project. The programme is supported by Ithala Development Finance Corporation Limited

"I was chosen as a team leader in our school business. I used to struggle with maths, but as a team we helped each other out. Now, accounting is something that I would like to do in the future. My biggest personal achievement has been gaining confidence. I am now able to talk to new people and can communicate clearly." Siphindile Nzama, Hope Valley Farm School, South Africa
