Friends of ECP supports Eyethu Careers Point’s project whose aim it is to help the young people in the townships reach their potential.
Eyethu Careers Point is a grassroots township non-profit organisation, whose purpose is to deliver workshops specifically designed to help young people to learn about themselves and the world around them . They then become more able to make career decisions that benefit themselves, their communities and their country.
The workshops are for those young people who are:
Still in school or who have dropped out of school for a variety of reasons. See: The Acorn program
Have finished their secondary or tertiary education but have not been able to take their next step. See:WorkNet Workshops
Where: in township community centres and schools
Cape Town’s townships are beset by crime, gang and drug cultures. Help these young people learn that they can build safer and more rewarding futures for themselves.
Friends of ECP seeks to assist the project by raising funds, providing workshop materials and training. For more information as to how Friends of ECP came about see: How we came about
