On the 18th of September IY Nyanga participated in a Career Expo organized by the Department of Social Development. The event took place at Ikhwezi Community Centre in Gugulethu and was attended by over 150 unemployed youth and other community members.

The Nyanga team hosted a table and got a 2minute slot to talk about IY, our work and the need for community members to get involved. There was a good response from the people present and we even had a parent who wanted to sign up her child currently doing Grade 4!

The occasion also provided an opportunity to mingle with organisations doing similar and complementary work in the community, and the team made useful acquaintances with superheroes from all over Nyanga and surrounding areas.

Thank you to Charlotte Abels from DSD, for inviting and accommodating IY Nyanga. The future is in all our hands.
