perhaps the greatest problem and fear we face in SA today is the millions of unemployed youth walking the streets; many of them with degrees and most with only basic education.
This is a recipe for revolution and crime.
Young men are often seen as a problem and are more easily caught up in “get rich quick” activities.
But there is truly serious and convincing HOPE ! Why? Because so many of these young people have a genuine, vibrant vision for South Africa - THEY are not giving up and running away. Quite the opposite; they are absolutely determined to feed themselves and their families. They create their own work, while improving the environment, all out of nothing.
Young people like these are the true leaders of a new Peaceful Micro-Farming Revolution, where all South Africans can eat high quality un-poisoned organic food in abundance and self-help jobs can be created by the tens of thousands.
