Kago Hub Agripreneur Mosesi Mosesi says the initiative has been the support structure he needed to help his business grow.

With youth unemployment levels at an all-time high in South Africa, 702 and Youth Employment Service hosted a Youth Economic Services Summit last week to find solutions.

The Youth Employment Service (YES) has already created 18,500 new opportunities for youth to work.
