Creating sustainable educational and employment projects for South Africa’s youth is no easy task. T-Systems South Africa is, however, doing so through collaborative initiatives that upskill previously disadvantaged youngsters through education in a sustainable manner. Aside from combating poverty and unemployment, these projects are also designed to help entrench South Africa as a globally recognised economic force for the Digital Age.

The initiatives form part of T-Systems South Africa’s support of the National Development Plan (NDP).

Dineo Molefe, MD at T-Systems South Africa, explains: “Because we are looking for a long-term solution to the shortage of skills and jobs in South Africa, we made sure that our Nation Building Initiative is aligned with the NDP – with its aim of eliminating poverty and reducing inequality by 2030. We focus on empowering people and businesses through sustainable projects that promote education, skills development, job creation and entrepreneurship. We are planning ahead for the future, but starting now with the foundations to build it.”

One of T-Systems’ success stories is the extension of its current Service Desk, which was situated in Midrand, to Hazyview by utilising talent and skills developed by the Hazyview Digital Learning Centre (HDLC).
