Business Synergies

                                                            Developing people

Learn to Earn has a number of opportunities for business to engage with the organisation.

These synergies with your company or organisation may include:

  • Through donating to Learn to Earn (money, product or time), your company may be able to contribute towards the revised B-BBEE scorecard, especially the Enterprise & Supplier Development, Skills Development and the Socio-Economic Development element. Non-monetary donations will need to be invoiced in order to qualify.
  • Being a registered Non-profit and Public Benefit Organization also means that quantifiable (invoiced) product or financial donations from within 10% of your company's gross annual income are tax deductible.
  • Marketing opportunities through the branding of sponsored product or equipment, implying further return on your social and marketing/PR investment

The average direct cost to develop one unemployed person is R12 000, this is the average cost across all courses. As the Learn to Earn motto espouses a 'hand up, not a hand out' approach, all our students are required to pay under 5% of this full course cost. Corporate (and other) donations are used to fund the remaining portion of the cost (thus 'subsidizing' the training and allowing us to keep the cost to the student at its minimum). LtE Khayelitsha and Hermanus campuses train around 500 unemployed people per year.
