2 Government’s priorities National Youth Service Programme (NYSP) Youth into Science Strategy (YiSS) Status of FabLabs Programme OUTLINE

3 Skills development / job creation / innovation Youth & communities Number of youth in Africa double by 2045 GOVERNMENT’S PRIORITIES

4 Around 60% of the continent’s unemployed are aged South Africa: ~ 37% youth population, 4-5 million unemployed youth (age 15-34) Government’s initiatives aimed at the youth: NYSP & YiSS GOVERNMENT’S PRIORITIES

8 Value recognized DST is sole funder Investment-to-date: R22m Strategic objectives approach adopted: mis-alignment STATUS OF FABLABS PROGRAMME

9 Rethinking of current FabLabs model Position for greater impact & long term sustainability Proposed new model: modular framework / multi-party funder STATUS OF FABLABS PROGRAMME
