Meet Nqobile Sthole. 

Before YES Nqobile was unemployed, in debt and unskilled. 


Through the Youth@worK YES program, Nqobile was able to create stability for her family, pay off her debt, choose a career in teaching and begin her studies, as well as open up a business, employ her own staff and work as a ECD teacher. All this has happened within her one-year youth placement journey. But now hear it from her.....
