3 KEY

FOCUS AREAS

EDUCATION & SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

Improving education and skills development is a key strategy in reducing high levels of youth unemployment and providing people with wider opportunities to escape poverty.

ENTREPENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT

In support of the IDC mandate of job creation, IDC CSI supports community entrepreneurial projects aimed at job creation.

SPECIAL PROJECTS

Consideration is also given to initiatives outside the two focus areas that are deemed strategic to support.
