This Youth Month, the North West Development Corporation (NWDC) is supporting a series of Youth Entrepreneur Development Workshops held in the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District of the North West Province.
NWDC is exhibiting services and offering youth entrepreneurship advice at youth workshop events hosted by LuckyTouchMultiMedia (Pty) in the City Matlosana and its surrounding areas.
Partners to the events include, among other, SEDA, the NYDA, Macef (NPO), the NWDC and the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality.
The Youth Entrepreneur Development Workshops are being hosted at Kanana, Jouberton and Khuma, leading up to the main Youth Day event which will be held in the Matlosana (Klerksdorp) CBD. Exact dates are indicated below.
The Youth Entrepreneur Development Workshops aim to educate and empower youth on various initiatives and resources available to them to access opportunities for both personal and business development. The workshop sessions are available to youth entrepreneurs and cooperatives managed by youth in the City of Matlosana.
The partners are hosting the workshops with the aim to draw youth organisations, media, unemployed youth, graduates and post graduates from the City of Matlosana and its adjacent areas.
The first workshop in the series took place on 3 June at the Tlokwe Community Art Centre in Kanana, as per the images displayed in the gallery.
Upcoming dates and venues are as follows:
• Jouberton Small Business Hub: 10 June 2022
• Khuma Hall*: 14 June 2022
• Matlosana CBD: 16 June 2022
*Due to the possibility of a venue change within the Khuma vicinity for the 14th, please keep updated via our social pages.
NWDC is looking forward to engaging with the youth of Matlosana during these upcoming workshops.
In complementing its Youth Month activities, the NWDC is further continuing with Gender-Based Violence (GBV) awareness outreaches to identified stakeholder groupings.
A GBV outreach takes place every month as part of NWDC’s commitment to CSI as well as integral awareness campaigns for special designated groups such as Youth, Women and People with Disabilities.
NWDC takes its guidance from the example set by its Shareholder, the Department of Economic Development, Environment, Conservation and Tourism, and where possible, the NWDC partners with its Shareholder and other entities.
If you are a GBV survivor based in the North West Province and would like to share your testimony and story of hope during our future sessions to encourage others, contact us at email@example.com.
