– Conscientise and expose out-of-school youth to internship and graduate opportunities within the road transport sector; and
– Capacitate SMMEs with relevant skills within the road transport sector to participate meaningfully in the local economic growth.

On the 20 June 2018, Nkateko Masinga went to the United States of America (USA), taking part in the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) which was initiated by former President of the the United States, Barack Obama in 2013.
Nkateko will be studying Civic Leadership at Wagner College in New York for the first six weeks of her fellowship, which will be followed by a Summit in Washington DC where she will meet and network with other young leaders from Africa as well as the United States.
Wagner College is a private, national liberal arts college in the New York City borough of Staten Island, New York, United States. Founded in 1883 and with a current enrollment of approximately 2,200 students, Wagner is known for its academic program, the Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts. The college is regionally accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Nkateko will be honing her skills at an institution with a rich history and a commitment to the arts as well as civic engagement, two things she is passionate about. She hopes to return with knowledge that will be beneficial to the organisations she is affiliated with, particularly with regard to expanding the corporate social responsibility divisions of such organisations.
The Mandela Washington Fellowship empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking.
In 2018, the Fellowship will provide up to 700 outstanding young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to hone their skills at a U.S. higher education institution with support for professional development after they return home. Institutes focus on leadership and skills development in one of three tracks: Business and Entrepreneurship, Civic Leadership, or Public Management.

The programme was aimed at revisiting AU’s 2063 Agenda looking at it from varying aspects.
The chairman made the following opening remarks whilst sitting at the panel:
“It is rather sad and unfortunate that the same AU which we are about to unpack its agenda and relevance will only have 35% of youth and 50% of women by the year 2025. Today we sit in a country whose population is 70% youth, however the government departments is 90% old. What about now? Why not clean up AU now? What’s stopping us now? Where do we expect to find fresh ideas to solve the emerging challenges can come with industry 4.0? Anyways, let us not even touch the 4th Industrial Revolution because we are 20 years behind. The first world countries are already in the 5th Industrial Revolution yet we expect old men and women to understand and catch up with the rest of world.”
Amongst the panelists were members from academia, African Renaissance Institute, Business and South African Government who were contributing towards the discussion to find amicable solutions for the challenges facing the continent. One of the challenges identified by Mr Ramoroka was that of lack of political.
“We must understand that one of the biggest problem facing the lack of youth development in our continent is lack of political will and leaders who are not innovative enough to create an enabling environment for youth to thrive with their skills, talents and qualifications. Each year we graduate more than 10 thousands, however, these young people cannot be placed anywhere. And NO, our biggest problem is not employability but lack of innovation from our leaders to create an enabling environment for jobs and functioning economies in Africa.” he emphasised.
“What we lack as African youth is collaboration. A challenge that I might be having in South Africa, there’s someone in Kenya who has found a working solution for it. With technology, we are able to tumble down the borders and collaborate on projects that can change lives and help put food on the table for millions of our people.” he added.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_gallery type=”nectarslider_style” images=”3679,3680,3681,3682,3683,3684,3685,3686,3687,3688″ hide_arrow_navigation=”true” bullet_navigation=”true” bullet_navigation_style=”see_through” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

It is with great honour to announce that one of our own leaders Mr Tshepang Pule better known by thousands as Pule Sir who joined a Brits North West community station – Madibeng FM as both content producer and presenter for “The Early Birds” show from 3-6 in the morning.
It was 2013 when I told Mr Pule that he has an incredible voice for radio and that his talent and passion to inspire and inform definitely belongs on the radio waves. Pule Sir never took that for granted, he worked hard to better his craft and today we celebrate his achievement with him. This is the beginning of many opportunities in the media space.
I have had the pleasure of working Pule on the #BeyondInspiration project and launched it in 2015. The book has been touching thousands of lives across the country. He is one of the most trustworthy, effective, dedicated, very punctual and efficient leaders I’ve ever worked with.
You can agree with me that media is one of the important sectors of the society that influences opinions and shapes views of the masses. Thus, we need powerful and influential young people who are going to bring back the dignity and pride of out beautiful country with excellency.
This year is a year of maximisation and as a growing movement, we are excited to see one of our own taking over in the media space. Our leaders not only preach excellency, but they also lead by example.
As Pule Sir adds yet another title in his profile, we take pride in the work he has done for the movement over the years. The daily inspirational content we receive on our social media platforms and our newsletters are results of his hard work.
We trust that God is lifting him up to greater heights.
