Young people in South Africa are at risk of being left behind by a lack of education, study funding and poor work prospects. The DA Youth is fighting for a better deal for all young people. We demand urgent action from government to ensure:
1) Every qualifying matric be given the opportunity to further their education. Nobody should be left behind because they can't afford to study. We call on government to increase the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) to R 16 billion per year.
2) Every school delivers quality basic education. Government must ensure that Annual National Assessments in Grade 3, 6 and 9 are internationally benchmarked and independently marked to enhance the quality of our education system.
3) More jobs are created for young people. If government works with the business community we can facilitate one million internships every year.
Together, we can secure a better deal for young people in South Africa.
