BuddiBox is the flagship entrepreneur development programme for the National Youth Development Agency. We have assumed a developmental approach in addressing systemic issues of youth unemployment.
Youth unemployment according to latest research has reached crisis levels, with more than 50% of youth unemployed in 2016. All indications show that youth unemployment numbers will continue increasing in the years to come unless large scale intervention strategies are implemented to address this issue.
Creating opportunities does not guarantee success. With this in mind we have developed a business model that lays the foundation for youth to take ownership of their future and assists them through the process. We equip enlisted youth with the necessary training, support, platforms and services in order to ensure they are successful and are able to progress as business owners.
BuddiBox partners with socially responsible corporate citizens and public enterprises in order to bring the BuddiBox distribution model into existence, leveraging existing brands and initiatives and relevant expertise within key areas of this project to ensure growth and sustainability.
