NARYSEC Feeding Scheme
NARYSEC youth have been instrumental in helping underprivileged community members in various aspects of their lives. After research done for the community in Ward 9, to find out about the number of orphans and the very poor, NARYSEC youth pooled together and set up a feeding scheme.
The objective of NARYSEC is to recruit and develop youth in rural areas' aged between 18 and 35 years to be paraprofessional who will provide community service in their communities. The programme is aimed at empowering the youth with various skills and is expected to create about 10 000 opportunities for at least four youths from the 3 000 rural wards in the country including youth with disabilities.
Successful candidates will undergo an intensive training programme, based on needs identified during an induction and approved by the department, and will receive a monthly stipend for the two year duration of the programme. Skills development will include discipline, patriotism, life skills, rights awareness and specific skills areas empowering youth to change rural areas. After the completion of the two year training programme, candidates will work in their communities providing services in local socio economic development.
The developed NARYSEC programme will complement the department's job creation model, which targets and ensures that at least one person per each household in the rural areas where the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP) is being piloted, gets employed and that such employment is linked to skills development. The department has initiated these job creation and skills development programmes, in line with its rural development mandate, to create vibrant, equitable and sustainable rural communities throughout South Africa and to contribute towards the key five priorities of government.
