South Africa: Lalelani (Listen to Us)

We run a youth empowerment project called Game Changers which aims to provide a group of unemployed youth with skills to help them gain employment. These young people come from a township where having a stable job is a rarity and any job opening in their area receives thousands of applications. This is not a story just true of our young people here in Edendale, Pietermaritzburg but of young people across South Africa. We would like their voices and experiences to be heard through a video blogging program that will initially focus on what it is like to be young and unemployed in South Africa.
