“Poverty is not always about having nothing. It’s sometimes also about doing nothing.”

Why WORK 4 A LIVING?

The Poverty Mindset says:

“I am poor, I will always be poor.” Not matter what opportunity comes my way, my circumstances will not change.”

Entitlement says:

“I am owed something! Who will give me a house? Who will educate my children…”

Lack of excellence says:

“I just need to do enough to get by…”

IF THESE MINDSETS ARE NOT CHANGED, WE WILL NOT CHANGE OUR COUNTRY OR OUR
CONTINENT. IT ALL BEGINS WITH EXCELLENCE IN EVERY CITY AND EVERY TOWN

Empowerment begins with listening

For many years we’ve been continually developing our programme by listening to:

EMPLOYERS

  • “I can’t find honest and reliable staff…”
  • “If I want 20 cashiers on a Saturday, I have to employ 40 – just to get 20 to come to work…”
  • “I can’t find people who take pride in their work…”
  • “We spend our time recruiting and training instead of development… people come and go all the time…”

THE UNEMPLOYED

  • “I am waiting for the government to give me a job…”
  • “There are no jobs – there is no point in looking…”
  • “I don’t even know how to find a job…”
