Why is This Under Who We Are?
Because we believe in ubuntu – umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu – and thus who we are is partly determined by those who have gone before us, those we walk with and those who will succeed us.
The Have Knot Trust
We are committed to taking our work beyond traditional boundaries. While Focused People is deeply passionate about impacting people in organisations, we know that this alone will not bridge the Gap between “Haves” and “Have-nots”. The Educational sector is the key, and we are delighted to have collaborated in the founding of the Have Knot Trust, now ably run by Thokoza Mjo. The career development and entrepreneurship programmes offered by the Trust are life-changing, and worth supporting.
1. Discover Your Career Workshops for Teens
Working with the excellent Discover Your Career System, workshops facilitate career development, assisting with self-knowledge, subject choice and career path decision-making. Follow-up workshops, preparing youth for the world of work, are also available.
With a credible track-record of entrepreneur development, this programme is hand-on, affordable and exciting for participants. With business support, the opportunity is provided for community businesses to collaborate, network and expand their horizons.
Why Support the Have Knot Trust?
- The programmes utilise world-class material, with substantive, measurable impact.
- The Trust is backed by Focused People and its associates.
- Co-branding and other visible media partnerships are encouraged. An example of this is the Global Entrepreneurship Week event, held at the Sandton Convention Centre, organised by Have Knot and Future Space Solutions, in collaboration with Sasol and the IDC.
- The trustees have been community-building for more than 30 years, collectively, and are passionate about impact, not posturing.
- The Trust aims at a 60/30/10 split, ensuring that a minimum of 60% of all funds raised reach the beneficiaries directly, with 30% covering facilitation fees and 10% marketing and promotions.
