DG Murray Trust fighting inequality and youth jobs challenge

The DG Murray Trust (DMT) is working to develop youth and curb unemployment through its initiative, Create Change.

The private foundation established the project to encourage ordinary South Africans to help support and uplift the country's youth.

DMT's CEO David Harrison explains that Create Change resources and publications aim to equip individuals, communities and organisations with information and tools that will enable young people to succeed.

It's really about recognising that so many young people have so few possibilities of work and further education.

Harrison advises that the foundation collaborates with various organisations and volunteers to reach the country's most vulnerable youth in South Africa's informal settlements.
