FOCUS De Beers Venetia

FOCUS De Beers Venetia Mine Youth Development Programmes Inspiring young people and creating opportunity Hundreds of young people from Venetia Mine’s labour-sending areas of Musina and Blouberg have already benefited from programmes aimed at supporting the youth. The De Beers Venetia Mine Youth Programmes kicked off on 21 June 2018, with a career guidance session and youth debate. The programmes aim to underpin the government’s National Agenda, which emphasises the part young people can play in building a prosperous future in South Africa. Central to the programmes is creating close communication channels between the mine and the young people in the communities, as well as supporting youth development initiatives. Focus Programmes focus on youth development, motivation and career guidance and helping young people to drive and acquire driver’s licences. All programmes are in line with our small enterprise development (SED) strategy of the mine that addresses issues of youth unemployment, procurement, and enterprise and supplier development. External stakeholders are being invited and engaged to take part, including union representatives, traditional authorities, universities, local authorities, business groups and chambers, youth structures and the Department of Education.

FOCUS The mine has run two introductory one-day sessions in Musina and Blouberg to launch the youth programmes coinciding with Youth Day. Day one in Musina was supported by four high schools and day two saw 450 students from nine high schools attend in Blouberg. Education Anglo American and De Beers in partnership with the Department of Basic Education launched the Anglo American South African Education Programme, an initiative of Anglo American’s sustainability strategy. This is a holistic approach to education from early childhood learning through to matric, the goal being to improve the educational outcomes of learners in our local communities of Musina and Blouberg. Kagiso Shanduka Trust (KST), appointed by Anglo American South Africa (AASA) to implement this programme, is seeking to employ unemployed youth for a period of one month to collect data from the schools selected for the programme. Driver’s licence assessments De Beers Venetia Mine conducted open driver’s licence assessments for the youth from Musina and Blouberg in July 2018. The programme is targeted to benefit 200 young people from both the labour-sending areas of the mine. Assessments were carried out and the programme is going to adopt a phased approach. The programme will not only facilitate a process of those wanting to acquire a driver’s licence but will also support the local driving schools to provide the youth with legitimate licences through approaching our Expressions of Interest process. 19 LIMPOPO BUSINESS 2018/19
