By partnering with Corporates and individuals, our aim is to annually raise funds to enable 100 disadvantaged or working class Youths in the Cape Town Metropolitan area with above average Grade 12 results to study further and obtain an industry recognised and internationally accredited qualification in either Hair or Health and Skincare.

The Issues facing our Youth today

Each of us is as intimately attached to the soil of this beautiful country as are the famous Jacaranda trees of Pretoria and the Mimosa trees of the bushveld - a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world.

The Lack of Funding

In 2016, of the total number of students attending South African Public Universities, 26% formed part of the Minority Groups. They did not qualify for the Government “Free Education” NASFAS Bursary scheme due to their Race Group irrespective of the fact that financially many could have fallen into the disadvantaged or working class bracket.
Today there continue to be many Minority Group students who qualify to study at the 26 public universities but are not attending due to a lack of funding. The Youth 100 Project is assisting these students to achieve their dream of furthering their education by reaching out to companies and individuals to help sponsor or donate towards the cost of the students’ tertiary studies.
