These days, LLYCE develops the youth produce outlet section in the centre. The idea is to offer free shop space for young people making non-perishable products. Many of them can sell their product locally, near their home and need help to reach a larger market. LLYCE is located in the middle of Matsapha at the Matsapha Business Centre, right next to FNB, where many people pass by, and not far for clients looking for the product. The main objective is to increase the sales potential of youth producers and help them generate more income. Being a social enterprise, LLYCE is charging 5% only from the sale price. The Centre reinvest the proceedings in other activities to enhance employability and income-generating skills among job seekers and young entrepreneurs.
LLYCE will market the products on its social media channels and encourage the public to support youth producers as well as the Centre’s activities that help develop needed skills in today’s market.
The Centre accept handmade products from youth under 35 years old. The products should be non-perishable that do not need fridge storage. LLYCE likes to stock items like jewellery, polish, compost, woodcraft, knitting, home-grown grains (not repacked) and clothes (not resale second hand). The producer will sign an MOU with the Centre to ensure accountability and transparency.
