Founded in 2017 with the vision of contributing towards the skills development of young people through outdoor education, the members of Fetola Bokamoso have been passionate about developing youth using innovative methods while prioritising the needs of our beneficiaries. Fetola Bokamoso was registered as an NGO and used community events as a fund-raising tool to run camps, mentorship programs and workshops for children and adolescents.
In 2022, our board agreed to direct our efforts towards youth aged between 18 and 35. This decision was made so that we can address the urgent need to change the bleak landscape for youth in our country and our continent at large. Our unemployment rates show a necessity for swift intervention on a large scale. This realisation brought about the partnership with Duja Consulting, a consulting firm that provides transformational professional services to businesses in South and Sub-Saharan Africa. Included in Duja’s service offering is the design and management of bespoke skills development programmes for youth entering the workplace for the first time.
As proud advocates for SDG 4: Quality Education and SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, we remain committed to prioritising the needs of our beneficiaries and we do so through our projects; Alumni Circle, Future Ready Youth and Young & Self Employed. We are driven by our purpose to empower youth to take charge of their life journey by equipping them with skills for the future and these projects help us reach youth on different parts of their journeys.
