“It’s very hard to find a job with just a Bachelor’s degree while getting funding for a postgraduate degree is almost impossible. Thank you to The Knowledge Trust and to Nmbrs for giving me the opportunity to further my studies with a bursary that covers all my university fees!”

A few of the 450 partners who trust us

75% of young South Africans are not in education, training, or employment.

South Africa has the highest youth unemployment rate in the world, and the highest gini coefficient in the world. We can improve the situation by investing in funding learning programmes that help young people get a qualification, work experience, and an income.
