With over 42% of the population between the ages of 15 -35 years (youth) and 70% of the unemployed being youth, we are facing a crisis with regard to supporting youth.We have therefore directed our efforts toward the creation of economic opportunities and skills development for the youth of Nkomazi and Hammarsdale. We believe that through job creation, training and skills development we can empower South Africa’s youth.

In February 2019, the DO MORE FOUNDATION began recruiting young local entrepreneurs from the Hammarsdale community to take part in the first Hammarsdale Small Business School (SBS).The SBS model – originated in Uganda – aims to address rising poverty levels among youth by uplifting a new generation of entrepreneurs who use local resources in their community to create business. This ready-to-deliver entrepreneurship training program builds confidence and provides practical business skills to the youth (regardless of education or income levels) assisting them to help discover the leader within.

A need for the strengthening and expansion of the local Hammarsdale economy to address rising youth unemployment has brought forward the Enterprise Development programme. Once beneficiaries have gone through entrepenuership training via the Hammarsdale Street Business School, they are converted into small enterprises and provided with market linkages, practical support and mentoring, business administration skills and assistance with applications for micro-financing.

Since the programmes inception sewing groups, beadworking and glasswork small businesses have been established using incubation models. The technical sewing group, made up of young men and women, has taken off with great speed creating beautifully hand crafted DoMoreBags using re-purposed branding material. These bags can be purchased via our online shop.

The StarSchools Incubator Programme (undertaken by SET) serves to supplement and enhance what learners are taught at school. It is designed to interrogate foundational gaps, plug these and take learners on an academic journey which teaches them the knowledge and skills to bridge across from basics to cognitively demanding and high order content.

The DO MORE FOUNDATION, together with AgriSeta and Sasol supports the StarSchools programme that is taking place in Nkomazi – assisting 150 grade 10, 11 and 12 learners every year with extra lessons in Maths, Science and English.

The now famous Selati Cup (in partnership with Trans African Concessions (TRAC), South African Football Association (SAFA) and the Nkomazi Local Municipality) was started 13 years ago as a way to bring camaraderie, entertainment and joy to the people of Mpumalanga.Since then, the tournament has grown in size and popularity each year – attracting teams in increasing numbers and level of skill, along with national football scouts eager to uncover new talent. Nowadays, 128 teams take part in the tournament over the course of three months, with the action culminating in an action-packed final where teams compete for a prize purse of over R100 000. Over and above being a great source of affordable entertainment, the Selati Cup also keeps youngsters off the streets and inspires them to pursue their own dreams;and it has put money in the pockets of the local community who play a key role in hosting the annual tournament, especially the Cup Final.
