Social gathering and various interactions amongst positive-minded individuals provided an opportunity where a common idea about youth development was born. In addressing the social needs of the communities that mounded them, the former learners of local secondary schools-through extensive consultation processes with relevant stakeholders – willingly committed themselves to improving the living standard of their society through ploughing back what they have reaped from these fields.
Since the future of any prosperous community depends on the productivity of its youth, the former learners saw it as an imperative that social challenges facing the young generation be uncompromisingly thwarted.
These social challenges include unemployment, HIV AIDS, poverty, crime, drug substance abuse, teenage pregnancy and others. The eradication of these social ills can be achieved through a collective effort. It is for this reason that the non-profit, community development organisation was established-Siyatjheja Social Project (SSP). This was on the 01st of February 2007.
It was officially launched during the re-union event of Tholulwazi S.S. School former learners, on the 21st of April 2007..
