What is FURTHER?
The great challenges of our time call us to rise to our highest human capacities. While South Africa has no shortage of challenges in our communities, we also have many resourceful, entrepreneurially minded people within these communities with the passion to solve them. FURTHER helps to equip these Impact Entrepreneurs with the skills, personal capacity, connections and opportunities they need to make the biggest possible impact.
Self-doubt is the greatest enemy of success. However, a young visionary with a sense of purpose and strong self-belief is a powerful force. That’s why we believe lasting change starts with nurturing the changemakers. Along with like-minded partners, such as the SAB Foundation, Lego Foundation and the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, we focus on growing human capacity – helping them develop the audacity and leadership skills needed to turn dreams and ideas into tangible solutions that will positively impact generations to come.
These are the proactive trailblazers working to uplift their communities. Our goal is to help them bridge the challenging gap between start-up and scale through holistic, tailored development programmes.
South Africa has a staggering youth unemployment crisis. This generation cannot afford to pin their hopes on securing a job – they need to be equipped to take charge of their own futures and write their own stories.
