We are sharing ECCD books with pre-schools, community centres and families to improve literacy rates among young children in Eswatini. The high-quality, age-appropriate books encourage reading during family time and in class. Book Dash South Africa and the Solon Foundation South Africa publish the books and donate them to our pre-school teachers. (2021-)
Our International Computer Driving License (ICDL) program provides young adults in Eswatini with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in today’s digital economy. Our students learn essential computer skills such as word processing, spreadsheet management, and online communication through online courses and in-person training. The Embassy of Israel in Pretoria funded the first course for 40 Emaswati youth. LLYCE is a certified ICDL Centre and provides self-taught space and testing. (2022-)
Our internship program provides students real-world work experience and a chance to develop their professional skills. We partner with local businesses and organisations to offer career exposure in various fields, including finance, marketing, and engineering. We aim to help youth job seekers build their resumes and gain the experience they need to succeed in their careers. The British High Commission in Mbabane funds the career exposure opportunity for 35 youths. (2023-)
Our Outreach program is enhancing employability skills among youth in rural communities in Eswatini. We visit them in their home area and facilitate fun and engaging workshops on values, vision, planning, CV writing, and job interviews. (2023-)
Our Spark program provides mentoring and support to young entrepreneurs in Eswatini. We work with aspiring business owners to develop their ideas, build their skills, and secure venture funding. We aim to help these entrepreneurs create successful businesses, contribute to the local economy, and create jobs for others. (2019)
To mitigate the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we helped our beneficiaries with an emergency gift of E500. Half of them used it as an immediate relief to buy food and essentials. The other half invested in small businesses that helped them survive the extended lockdown in Eswatini. We could not do without the incredible support of the Solon Foundation South Africa, Swazi Kids, friends, and families.
In 2022, with the generous support of UNICEF Eswatini and the European Union Delegation in Eswatini, we launched the Likusasa Letfu Youth Centre for Employability. We aim to help youth come out of the epidemic and start their career to support themselves and their families.
Our Advanced Workshops program provides specialised training and education to students who have completed our basic vocational or tertiary education programs. We offer courses in various fields, including advanced computer skills, leadership and management, and entrepreneurship. We aim to help our students build on their existing skills and knowledge and achieve even more remarkable career success. The NLL graduate contributes funds to implement this project. Their contribution is part of their commitment to NLL, worth 25% of what we invested in their education.
