I am a 100% South African and very much love my country.
We have a very real crime problem that needs to be brought under control. This situation has arisen from a poor education system that has failed our youth and led them directly into a life of crime purely to survive. In my opinion the only way to bring our beautiful country out of this insanity is education. It may not happen in my life time but if I can set the pace and direction of our youth to eventually bring South Africa to a better place I would rest in peace knowing South Africa will survive.
How am I going to achieve this you ask - with small steps...
My plan is as follows
1. Create an online store marketing South African art and clothing. This will immediately create income for South Africans in the manufacture process and would assist them to keep their kids fed and in school. to be a vendor on this site will require a legal acceptance of the above.
2. The profits generated from the website will be pooled and over time I would like to create free community colleges across South Africa for the youth. I would like to specialize in technological training i.e. computers etc as this is the future of the world.
3. As always there will be certain individuals that will excel immensely and those individuals I would like to set up in their own business with legal stipulations to employ youth from the program.
4. Once their business's are flourishing they too will need to produce a community upliftment project. my aim is for this cycle to never end.
So friends, I know this is a mammoth task but I have to start somewhere and my somewhere is now.
Please see it in your heart to support and help South Africa grow into a bright new future.
Thank you for your precious time,
Gary & Melanie
