Increasing the absorption and retention of youth, at risk of long-term unemployment, into the formal economy.
Harambee was started by Adrian Enthoven 2nd Class, Charles Luckyx and Nicola Galombik from the 3rd Class. Harambee focuses on increasing the absorption and retention of youth, at risk of long-term unemployment, into the formal economy. A market-based and demand-led approach has been adopted and to date Harambee has placed over 800 young work seekers into fulltime employment, achieving a retention rate significantly above market average. Adrian’s other project, Programme to Improve Learner Outcomes, has founding collaborators that include fellows from various ALI (SA) classes amongst them Ketso Gordhan from the 1st class and Nicola Galombik from the 3rd class. PILO has developed a framework for systems improvement in support of the Department of Basic Education’s Action Plan 2014.
