Find your Passion

Written by on November 3, 2019 in Nanima Foundation

 

Last year I felt I needed to fill my time with a career as my children were busy at school. I wondered if I should go back into my old career or start something else. I looked for career tests and was directed to Prof Maree’s career matrix and career interest. I met with a career life coach and now I am pursuing my passion in learning Arabic and Islamic studies and growing and focussing on  my Nanima work.

One of the biggest issues South Africa is facing is unemployment and most of the youth don’t know their purpose, they don’t know their passion and mostly they don’t know their skill that they good at. They are idle and bored. Get involved in crime, drugs and promiscuity. Unemployment levels are high. Teen pregnancy stats are high and so are the crime rates in the country.  A career test can give the lost youth some direction and career counselling can help the youth find their passion and purpose.

I met with Mercyful Mathebula who is one of the first officially qualified career development practitioner in South Africa from  Hazyview. I was there at the conference we she received her registration and discussed this project. We are planning a pilot project to see how we can offer career counselling to 100 township children free of charge, Mahala..  Our target are 50 students in an urban area and 50 students in a rural area. We are excited to see the results of these two diverse group of students. Our target audience is 2020 – Gr9 Students. These students would need to chose subjects next year and this would be the ideal group to start with. All these students will have access to take career development tests based on career interest profile. They will receive a career feedback report.  Career counselling from our career development practitioner will be offered via whatsapp or email to all students that we go through in this pilot. Students will also be assisted in gr11 with bursary applications and university applications and career guidance they require.

Our Career development practitioner who came all the way from Hazyview excitedly to proactively discuss this project will be volunteering her time mostly on weekends to assist us with this project. Most of the funds will be going towards the tests, stationary and anything extra will go towards the career development practitioner for her time.

These tests are worth thousands of rands and unaffordable to grass root level.  With the right direction we can help the youth find their purpose and passion.

We target 500 students for 2020 after we go through our pilot project in the first term of school in 2020.
