Learn to Earn Mobile Academy

                                                             LtE Mobile Training

The Learn to Earn Mobile Academy is an extension of the Learn to Earn Association and seeks to replicate the LtE model through an approach that is demand driven, contextually relevant, efficient and mobile based.

Programmes and Projects designed and implemented by the Learn to Earn Mobile Academy are innovative and geared towards rebuilding human dignity and holistically addressing unemployment and issues of injustice. Employment in the formal economy or active entrepreneurship is a result of our Mobile Training interventions - individuals and groups are empowered, taking ownership of the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide for themselves and their families. Because programmes are tailored to address the issues relevant to each context – projects are viewed as a collaborative partnership and not a service.

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.
