Youth Day 06/2018

June is celebrated as Youth Month in South Africa, with a specific focus on 16 June, which is also known as Youth Day. Youth Month pays tribute to the school pupils who lost their lives during the 16 June 1976 uprising in Soweto.

Lesedi’s purpose and vision for the future is to be the leading engineering, procurement and construction enterprise recognised for empowering and energising the enrichment of the African continent – empowering Africa through empowering and investing in its youth.

Part of our mission statement is focused on improving the lives of everyone we touch and by empowering the communities where we operate. One powerful way in which we can change the future, is to invest in the youth of tomorrow!

On 16 June, we commemorate the brave students who lost their lives during the 16 June 1976 uprising in Soweto for a better South Africa. On Thursday 14 June 2018, Lesedi employees braced themselves as the most severe cold front hit Cape Town.

A group of staff visited Sinejongo High School in Joe Slovo Park for a Careers Day focused on teaching Grade 12 learners on how to compile a CV and providing them with valuable interview skills training.

A guest speaker from the University of the Western Cape provided guidance on how to apply for university, financial resources available for after school studies, and how to choose subjects.
