For Social Betterment

Women and Youth Empowerment Trust

Research

We work in partnership with Omni Academy for Education, Training and Development to facilitate research projects which are linked to our overall directive and intent. We aim to be an institution that helps with policy creation and the betterment of policy implementation.

Skills Development

We work in partnership with Omni HR Consulting to consult, craft and implement various skills development initiatives. The organisation has a track record of being able to implement, manage, monitor, and evaluate large scale Skills Development Solutions.

Investment

It is the intent of The WYE Trust to procure investment in business areas with growth potential as set out by the National Development Plan (NDP). And to quote: “This plan envisions a South Africa where everyone feels free yet bounded to others; where everyone embraces their full potential.

Welcome

The Women and Youth Empowerment (WYE) Trust was founded in 2018 with the main directive to help solve the “societal problems” of education and employability of women and youth that has been historically left out of the equation. It is our ethical responsibility to give back and help chart a future that allows for equal opportunity.

The WYE Trust will therefore work in partnership with funders, donors, and Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Schemes to the benefit of the beneficiaries of the Trust (Women and Youth) to ensure access to quality education post-school and education for employability.

Business Development Assistance

The WYE Trust works with organisations which choose to develop and enhance their business operation. The intent of Business Development Assistance is to craft Enterprise and Supplier Development Solutions that would be beneficial to all stakeholders.

Recruitment and Selection of Beneficiaries

We work in partnership with organisations to recruit and select suitable candidates for consideration in various agreed upon Skills Development Solutions. Candidates aptitude and their ability to become positive role players in the South African workforce is critical to the success.
