ABOUT MAJOZINI YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Is a South African non-profit Organisation committed to building long-term and scalable solutions to youth unemployment, Lack of Education, Inequality, and Violence against woman and children. In, South Africa the biggest challenge is the lack of access to quality jobs in the formal sector because of low educational attainment and inadequate professional skills, the underserved youth in South African rural communities often find themselves unemployed or employed in the informal sector.
