The vision of the MRP Foundation is to empower young South Africans to break the cycle of poverty and inequality as they journey from school into a career. As a youth development organisation, the purpose of the Foundation is to unlock tomorrow’s potential through education and skills development programmes.
MRP Foundation Schools Programme
The holistic education programme aims to cultivate quality educational environments through supporting school management and leadership, developing educators, involving parents and communities and holistically developing learners. It’s active in 98 primary schools across the country.
Jump Start Programme
Jump Start unlocks career potential and fast-tracks careers for unemployed youth in the retail and manufacturing sectors. Through life skills and training, the skills development programmes bridge the gap between school or tertiary education and the world of work. Partnerships with industry and Employer Partners ensure youth are better prepared for employment and where possible, are connected to career opportunities.
