The Shimuzic Foundation and the Hollywood Foundation have launched a level 3 Seta accreditation internship called The Hub. The programme is four months long and is aimed at up-skilling 15 young individuals from Tembisa in the fields of event management, design and entrepreneurship.
Artist Shimza says: “I understand that knowledge not shared is knowledge wasted, The Hub exists because I want learners to equip themselves with skills that they can make a life out of.”
He added that the Shimuzic Foundation and Hollywood Foundation partnership allows him to assist the less fortunate and help them so they can later help themselves and others.
“We know that this is a continuous journey, and we are most fortunate to have Hollywood Foundation as our partner every step of the way,” he said.
“The Hollywood Foundation is intentional with the upskilling of the youth in South Africa and the partnership with Shimuzic Foundation affirms our strong commitment to creating a positive social and economic impact, particularly in the context of combating youth unemployment.
“The success of this programme will serve as a model for similar initiatives in other regions and industries,” stated group transformation manager, Hollywood Foundation Babongile Mkhize.
