South Africa: KwaZulu-Natal will receive a State of the Art Youth Academy
Source: Issued by: KwaZulu-Natal Office of the Premier
Source Date: Friday, March 15, 2013
Country: South Africa
Created: Mar 15, 2013

The programme aims to provide young people with safety nets so that they will not fall back into anti-social behaviour as a result of their unfortunate circumstances. The duration of the training will be three months and the youth will receive accredited certificates which they can use for further studies, start their own businesses or seek formal employment.
The project is the brainchild of KwaZulu-Natal Premier, Dr Zweli Mkhize and phase 1 is funded to the tune of R20 million by the Department of Social Development. Construction of phase 1 (a) and 2 will resume in the next financial year at the cost of R31 million respectively. Similar projects will be constructed in the next financial year in Vuma, Eshowe (uThungulu District), Ngagane, Newcastle (Amajuba District Municipality), Lions Park, Pietermaritzburg (uMgungundlovu District Municipality).
