Status = Mediated Projects:  (to whom we have made a mentoring contribution)

 

Type of Project

HIV/AIDS and Skills Development

 

Geographical Area

Queenstown, Eastern Cape

 

Profile

The Eastern Cape is a predominantly rural province, and is the poorest in SA.  It is also rated amongst the leading provinces highly affected by the scourge of HIV/AIDS.  Over 35% of African males and females have received no secondary school qualifications; of those who are available for and desire to work, the unemployment rate is higher in the EC than SA as a whole.

Although the project is not fully operational yet, it aims to focus on the following:
