Sprouting Hope assists actively seeking unemployed individuals with the basic tools required to search for work, after screening each individual on the merit of their request we first ask each individual to complete a sworn affidavit at the nearest police station detailing their current circumstances and explain how the money will be utilised. On completion, we then request a copy of the unemployed individual's cv to be forwarded and each case is carefully assessed before we can commit. We further encourage unemployed individuals incorporating both men and women to take up the small home-based entrepreneurships in which we have partnered up within the beauty & photography institutions, soap making and second-hand clothing business (i.e. The Beauty Academy, Vega Photography School, The Appliance Bank, and The Clothing Bank respectively). Once the unemployed individual has been accepted on the programme and after receiving confirmation from the sponsor that the individual that has been accepted we then assist with transportation costs for a period of (4 days to a month depending on the type of programme taken up (4 days being the programme offered by The Appliance Bank & Clothing Bank after which time these sponsors assist with the transportation costs). Sprouting Hope administration and travelling costs are also currently under severe strain and assistance therein will most definitely be appreciated, we further ask donors for assistance with good quality used clothing and shoes to assist unemployed individuals with correct attire for an interview.

Sprouting Hope NPC
Sprouting Hope is a registered organisation that is dedicated in helping unemployed citizens of South Africa. We assist unemployed citizens with monetary vouchers to aid them in their job hunting (i.e. data & airtime, a new pair of shoes or an item of clothing & transport fare to attend an interview), utilize the money towards building a small entrepreneurship in which their passion lies or strengthening their CV by completing small online courses.
This ultimately lessens the pressure within each community (i.e. family members, churches and government). Sprouting Hope was founded by a single mother who has fought all odds in her life and is sprouting out triumphantly in hope.
Sprouting Hope is giving back dignity to the unemployed by supplying them with the necessary tools in becoming positive contributing citizens despite their current challenges. It is our aim, together with our sponsors to help as many unemployed citizens as we possibly can to be in the driving seat taking control of their own future and finances. As they progress they too will be in a position to employ other unemployed citizens within each community, thereby not just been reliant on jobs from the formal sector or looking to families and government for support.
