In South Africa, 8.5 million youth are unemployed. The current economic circumstances stack the odds of success against even the brightest and most hard working of our young people.
Trusted Interns is on a mission to place every one of them in their first paid job.
Their services help match young people with organisations that provide paid work opportunities. They also break down unemployment barriers by providing travel to interviews, mentorship and ongoing skills development.
For Mandela Day 2020, Veldskoen donated 67 pairs of shoes to Trusted Interns to help their community start their first job on the right foot! Our journey shoes are the perfect accompaniment to confidence and pride, on day one of your first job!
We would like to continue this good work, by getting as many deserving first time employees as possible into a pair of Veldskoen shoes.
We are asking South Africans to either buy a pair of shoes, or contribute to a pair. VELDSKOEN will match every pair paid for.
Thank you for helping us empower Mzanzi's next generation of workers!
