Academy Courses Sponsored for Over 220 Students
Pride Factor is delighted to announce that more than 220 students already have access to the Academy courses thanks to generous sponsorship from companies, NGO’s and individuals who are passionate about addressing the problems of unemployment, poverty and inequality in Africa.
The bulk of the funding to date has been donated by Learn To Trade and the Greg Secker Foundation whose founder and CEO aims to provide young people, regardless of their background, with practical life strategies and emotional development tools.
Additional funds were kindly contributed by Juan Botha (Events Chameleon), Anna Shilina (Empanna Properties), Babsy Shilubane (Daughters of Destiny), Linda Liquorish (The Rock), Edward Martin and Dr Norman Cahi (Cahi Dental Practitioners).
