If the South African government could create more job and leadership opportunities for the upcoming youth it would benefit the economy and country as a whole.
Crime would decrease and many people would be able to provide for their families and pay back the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) bursaries they owe. Some could start businesses to employ people and create opportunities in their communities. They could even give bread to other people to survive on and to help provide for the families of others.
Or they could invest in small communities’ businesses and teach new skills through workshops. Then they would have the knowledge needed to run a business and start growing. They could give businesses sponsors and legal advice to work on building their enterprise.
