Diepsloot Youth Projects
Diepsloot Youth Projects (DYP) is an inspirational Youth-managed organization that is empowering hundreds of young township dwellers by giving them access to resources, information, advice and skills, and equipping them to become responsible, employable and self-reliant citizens.
DYP currently supports over 1500 beneficiaries with various services including practical skills training, computer training, career counselling, school and community outreach programmes and life skills development.
DYP joined the Old Mutual Legends Programme in 2010, and received significant one-on-one mentorship as well as access to the full spectrum of business support and skills training offered by the programme.
Thanks to greater professionalism, improved marketing and better systems, our funding went from R54,000 in 2010 to R1,1million in 2011 to nearly R1,5million in 2012! I do not know where we would be without the support of the Legends programme.
