Trusted by the best

Do good, and do well.

To commemorate Mandela Day, The Knowledge Trust aims to enrol 67,000 young South Africans into a 30-day programme, delivered entirely on WhatsApp, to grow their mindset and increase their employability. The top performing participants will then get access to jobs, learnerships, and bursaries – with your support.

How it will work

1. WhatsApp CV

Participants will create a digital CV via WhatsApp that will be used when they apply for opportunities

2. Growth Mindset

They will get access to a WhatsApp nano-course on “How to Grow Your Mindset” by the South African College of Applied Psychology

3. Daily Learning

For 30 days, they’ll get daily prompts with learning materials designed to improve their skills and grow their mindset

4. Opportunities

The most engaged and invested participants will be invited to apply for learnerships, jobs and bursaries

How you can help


Get higher quality applications through WhatsApp.

When given the choice, 87% of young South Africans choose to submit their job applications via WhatsApp as opposed to a website. This is because it’s more convenient and affordable.

We help our partners source, screen and shortlist the very best talent from 1000s of applications, in 48 hours.


Learnerships help build talent pipelines and are also great tools to improve your BEE scorecard. They close the income gap, skills gap, and experience gap. 

We’ll help you choose the right training provider, recruit the best talent and find a host employer if you can’t host the talent yourself.

100% of your learnerships spend will contribute to your BEE scorecard targets.

Training Provider Partners


Sponsor bursaries for existing or upcoming students and help grow the next generation of leaders in South Africa. We’ll find the best students, get their fee statements and handle the inbetween bits.

We believe that education is the one thing that can save the world – and young South Africans desperately need education. Do you?

100% of your bursary spend, including our management fee, will contribute to your BBBEE scorecard targets.


Get your brand in front of 350,000 young people.

Rewards are a powerful tool to incentivise and encourage positive behaviours. With all the despair plaguing the youth, the smallest things can act as tools to get them in invest in their own self-development.

Rewards examples include data, airtime, laptops, shopping vouchers, short courses, coaching sessions, and lifestyle products.


It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes a community to build a nation.

Every individual has the ability to help reach our target of 67,000 educated and employed young people.

Contribute to our crowdfunding campaign from as little as R67 ($4.50).
