OUR PASSION

Our passion is fuelled by the conviction that we are changing our world, by giving others a chance to change theirs. We have a desire to proactively change the socio-economic status our nation is challenged with. The 4Change Foundation has an undeniable passion for life and people and we earnestly believe that, “the greatest gift you can give anyone, is the chance to change”.

In South Africa, the youth unemployment rate has risen drastically  to 55.9% since 2014, which is at least half of our population. This number continues to rise for several reasons such as poverty, single parent homes, violence in schools and drug/alcohol abuse apart from several other reasons.

According to an article from the missionalia journals,there are various reasons for youth unemployment such as population growth, lack of experience, inappropriate ways of searching for a job, and lack of career guidance in schools. The unemployment rate for first-time job-seekers in South Africa is unacceptably high.

Young people are beginning to feel a sense of alienation from the larger society and a sense of betrayal by the government, because they realise that their lives have not changed for the better since 1994.

OUR FOCUS

To allow our youth the opportunity to change the lens through which they view life, to recognise and learn how to seize opportunity, to assist them in thinking creatively and teaching them how to become successful by discovering the gift on the inside. Our students leave here with what we call indispensable skills and undeniable value.

We believe at the core of every individual are gifts and strengths that need to be discovered, developed and nurtured. The unearthing of these gifts become the passion and fuel that propels every leader into their destiny. It is this uniqueness that separates one leader from the next.When the individual is deployed back into the community, they are equipped to apply the principles that govern the philosophy of the 4Change Foundation, to produce transformational change.

“THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE ANYONE, IS THE CHANCE TO CHANGE”
-Dr. Maxwell Holland.

OUR PHILOSOPHY: Develop a Powerful Biography

We believe that each individual is born with the desire to create a powerful legacy; a story that will inspire and impact others. We start to pen this story the moment we develop cognitively and many aspects of our lives shape the creation of our personal biography.

Using this analogy of an author penning a novel, we develop each individual within the following domains:
