The YE Foundation is a registered non-profit entity (170-714 NPO) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 930055668) that has as its major objective to attract donor funding and corporate sponsorships in order to offer entrepreneurship and financial literacy programmes to children from previously disadvantaged communities.
Educating young children and teens about entrepreneurship and the business world can play a crucial role in helping the next generation break out of the vicious cycle of poverty. In actual fact, we truly believe it is the only way. Youth unemployment, poverty alleviation and major socio-economic change can only be achieved if we establish an entrepreneurial culture in South Africa. We need to expose kids to entrepreneurship from an early age and nurture the entrepreneurial mindedness that comes naturally to them.
You can either sponsor a child for a full 30-week programme (R3080), you can donate part of the full programme expense (any amount of your choice), or you can sponsor a BizBox (R580). The YE BizBox is a do-it-yourself, step-by-step starter kit for children to start a real business. It is a complete ‘business in a box’ that, amongst many other cool stuff, include all the raw material needed to make between 15-20 products, a workbook and an instructional video.
