Career Guidance in Diepsloot

On Friday 4th August, Adopt-a-School Foundation hosted a career expo in Diepsloot in partnership with Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation as part of its work in coordinating the stakeholder collaboration network in that community. Adopt-a-School’s work in schools often reveals greater underlying social issues affecting the community, including chronic unemployment and the disempowerment of women and children. The expo sought to address some of these issues by creating a framework that allows young women and children to lift themselves out of poverty and to become independent and empowered.
