CHANGING SOUTH AFRICA ONE JOB AT A TIME
TFG is a family, a multi-cultural, massive collective of men and women from local communities all over South Africa striving to better themselves, their lives and ultimately the economy of the country.
A sure-fire way to achieve economic stability is through the creation of jobs and supporting local people. Real employment for real people. TFG currently employs 23 000 people and this number is growing.
South Africa is a country with over 50% unemployment, and the bulk of these people are the youth: school-leavers without prospects for further education and employment. TFG deeply understands the impact this has and has risen to the occasion to actively provide thousands of jobs and meaningful opportunities.
Statistics show that every job created supports an average of 5 people. So TFG launched its Learnership Program, offering education through learnerships, with employment opportunities for community members and the prospect of significant local upliftment; with 90% of the learners who complete the learnership program becoming full-time TFG employees.
TFG also places a significant emphasis on creating opportunities for disabled members of society. In partnership with St. Vincent School of the Deaf, they’ve trained deaf learners on the entire chain of clothing production, absorbing many into jobs at their factories and developing the skills base for entrepreneurship and alternate employment opportunities. And with the success of the programme it is set to expand to 150 people by the end of 2023.
TFG wants to enable ordinary people, equipped with world-class training and facilities, to achieve extraordinary things. In an industry that has been especially hard-hit, rising above is a true testimony to the ability of TFG in not only staying the course, but mapping out exciting new futures for South Africans.
