Ownership beneficiaries

The beneficiaries of all partnerships with the Imvula Educational Empowerment Fund are black, unemployed and disadvantaged youth that are given a package of support facilitated by the Maharishi Institute. They are provided with a comprehensive career package that facilitates true lifelong empowerment, including access to a university-level business degree, industry-recognised vocational skills qualifications, full-time employment, personal development, soft skills training and ongoing hands-on coaching and mentorship.  The combination of the degree, with the work experience and personal development obtained while completing their studies, ensures that close on 100% of them will have jobs when they finish their studies.

As owners, Imvula and its family of organisations have been able to change the lives of thousands of young people. These organisations have educated over 17,250 unemployed youth ‘out of poverty’; youth now working in jobs with combined annual salaries in excess of R1 billion, and with combined estimated lifetime earnings of over R27,2 billion.

Below are some of the young people who are on their way to becoming professional, economically active citizens
