How To Register With Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator

Youth in every country’s citizenry is very pivotal and helps grow the economy of every country. As the future leaders of tomorrow the best effort a country’s government can offer its youth is to create employment for its people. With youth, a country is guaranteed its safety and its major growth. 

With a total populace of 20.6 million contributing about 35% of the entire population, it has become a necessity to help decrease the unemployment rate in South Africa. With individuals, organizations, religious bodies, government institutions, and a host of others putting in maximum effort to help the youth acquire, if not the best of jobs for their preference, at least trying to reduce the unemployment rate.

Though a lot of South African youth are not well vested with information as far as employment is concerned, others have been able to find their way through to help secure a job with others still dancing and drumming to the tune of unemployment.

With their sole responsibility of reducing unemployment in our society, since its inception, lots of youth have benefited from such an initiative which has constantly helped several young South Africans acquire a job.
