Khanya is a charity (registration no 1181592) whose vision is to equip young people in Southern Africa with practical skills so they can earn a living and support their families.
How will we achieve this?
Khanya is supporting disadvantaged children and young people in Makhanda (Grahamstown) in the Eastern Cape, South Africa (see ‘Our Projects’ page). The charity provides funds for materials, training and a basic stipend for students and apprentices where applicable. We advocate for, and help facilitate, the provision of holistic training and mentorship so young people are supported in gaining an overall knowledge of how their business works. Khanya also works with partners and local industry to foster apprenticeships and work experience placements.
Vocational and trades We encourage working in partnership with local businesses to provide training and mentorship/apprenticeships in such skills/trades as:
Bricklaying and electrical skills
Carpentry, woodworking and joinery
Sewing and tailoring
Arts and crafts
Khanya has plans to expand its scope to include agriculture, animal husbandry and driving.
Khanya encourages volunteers from overseas to visit our projects to see
how donations are spent, and
to pass on their expertise to a group of young people who are ready to learn.
