Lulaway has many meaningful strategic partnerships with government, NGOs and corporate enterprises. Lulaway was born. In 2011, we converted our existing internet cafés into our first Lulaway Job Centres. Today, we run over 160 Job Centres in all nine provinces. Lulaway Job Centres act as employment hubs in communities across South Africa and not only provide hope and inspiration to local communities that often struggle with access to opportunities but also a user-friendly platform for candidates to access job opportunities close to where they live.
Since then our Job Center network has expanded and now allows a job seeker to apply for jobs, create detailed profiles, complete basic assessments and receive a full color professional looking CV. Employers are then able to easily identify best suited candidates through our high tech Lulaway Portal, receive support from one of our trained recruiters or access a tailor-made business turnkey solution.
National Youth Development Agency
The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) is a South African-based agency established primarily to tackle challenges that the nation’s youth are faced with. The NYDA was established by an Act of parliament, Act no 54 of 2008. The institution was established to be a single, unitary structure, established to address youth development issues at National, Provincial and Local government level. The existence of the NYDA should be located within the broad context of South Africa’s development dynamics. Similar to many developing countries, South Africa has a large population of youth, those between the ages 14-35 represent 42% of the total population. Given the youthful nature of the South African population much of the socio-economic challenges faced by the nation, i.e. poverty, inequality and joblessness, poor health, etc, are borne by the youth. The gravity of challenges South Africa is faced with, require multi-pronged efforts, that simultaneously promote the development of sustainable livelihoods, reduce poverty, inequality and prioritise the development of policies which create an enabling environment for youth development.
