How we do it
This highly effective programme includes training in Business skills, Life skills and Technical skills, as well as a comprehensive Job Creation programme, to further develop these skills.
Through a funnelled approach The Hope Factory works to develop and place entrepreneurs in their own business. Those who do not become entrepreneurs, are placed in the formal sector or continue as part of the Job Creation Programme. Of the entrepreneurs who enter the programme, 82% become financially productive.
