Employment Creation

While Repatriation, education and outreach of heritage remain the core business of the Foundation, we have been guided by our research which pointed to the lack of available and related skills in this sector and the failure to use heritage to empower communities and create a more entrepreneurial society in South Africa, thus contributing to the economic development of the country.

What is an entrepreneur?

An entrepreneur is a person who takes an idea and an opportunity, and turns them into a profitable enterprise by harnessing the necessary skills and resources to manage the risks involved. 

To this end Ifa Lethu is committed to providing young creative practitioners (Visual artists, sculptors and fashion designers of South Africa) and empowering them, through the exchange of skills and knowledge, to take their places as successful and economically sustainable members of our society, providing a living for themselves and their families. 

Ifa Lethu does this through a series of projects and events during which our young people learn creative and business skills that will equip them for the future.
