Recently, Bright Youth Council (BYC) launched its non-profit organisation to offer nutritional programs, computer courses and skills development to the community.
- A Winterveldt youth centre develops skills for the community
- Nutritional programme is an additional initiative incorporated into the daily project
- The Winterveldt-based organisation was established in 2001
- Their Facebook page is often updated with information about their latest projects
The Winterveldt-based organisation was established in 2001 to facilitate community socio-economic challenges. After establishing its head office at 5 Morgan, the organisation opened another center using a building donated by the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure, Social Co-operative Responsibility/Investment.
As part of its community outreach, BYC offers the Nutritional Development Centre (CNDC) and Skills Development. Nutritional Cooked Meals are provided to 250 beneficiaries in the Main Center and 150 beneficiaries in the Satellite Center under the CNDC Programme
This project aims to eliminate social ills that stigmatise the Winterveldt community, especially unemployed youth.
The nutritional programme is an additional initiative incorporated into the daily project, where they provide nutritional cooked meals daily. The Programme has several beneficiaries, including 250 at the Main Centre and 150 at the Satellite Centre. Both centres play a huge role in Eradicating Malnutrition and Eliminating Poverty among the most impoverished in Winterveldt.
The organisation offers free training through its Skills Development Programme, including Information Referral and Help Desks, Life Skills Programmes, and Computer and Security Education.
With the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the need to adapt the way we live, the Programme of Skills Development helps the community obtain sufficient and relevant information.
Their Facebook page is often updated with information about their latest projects. It encourages community members to visit their centres and gain valuable life skills.
Currently, they relies on funding from the Department of Social Development, and they are looking for support in the private sector
Bright Youth Council plans to source International Funders and Private Companies and develop a targeted 3 to 5-year plan to source other social welfare organisations.
