At SOS Children’s Villages we have a programme to empower young people, called YouthCan! We leverage corporate partnerships to support young people to successfully manage the transition from school to independent adulthood.
This week, hundreds of children from our SOS Mamelodi and Ennerdale programmes attended the BRICS Skills Expo to learn about the‘ jobs of tomorrow’. It all took place in a massive, brightly lit hall, buzzing with activity.
On returning home from school, the children from the SOS Children’s Village in Cape Town were surprised to see a DJ booth had been set up. They were even more surprised when Martin Garrix appeared. The chart-topping Dutch DJ/Producer, who is an International Friend of SOS Children’s Villages, stopped by the Village before performing at two concerts in South Africa.
