On the youth front of the empowerment of rural people, the Department has the National Rural Youth Service Corps (NARYSEC) a combination of skills development, workplace readiness and job opportunity creation programme involving young people residing and making a living in rural settings. It is a long term skills development and job creation programme of government facilitated, coordinated and implemented by the Department in partnership with other national, provincial and local structures. Its intention is to ensure maximum value is derived from the skills and knowledge systems of rural populations. In the end, the enhancement of skills, the development of complete transferable competencies will improve the economic condition of rural areas and young people in particular. Close to 7000 Women has benefited from NARYSEC.

The Department is currently working on making the participation of rural youth organizations in the councils of stakeholders at our Comprehensive Rural Development Programmes sites a policy requirement. This will go a long way in empowering young people to take charge of their community developments.

To maximise job opportunities, the department is in the process of constructing various institutions through its Rural Infrastructure Development Programme, such as the Beaufort West Youth Centre with ICT and Recreational Facilities; Recreational facilities and cultural hub at Masia in Limpopo; and the Witzenberg Recreation Facilities and enterprise development centre.

To increase the skills base, including scares skills critical skills, the department established the I-School Africa project which currently provides access to ICT at 13 schools across the country.

The Departmental Youth Development Strategy provides a conscious and coordinated response to developing the capacity of rural youth to engage meaningfully in rural development and land reform programmes. It directly responds to the status quo, challenges and opportunities the youth are experiencing and offers strategic options for facilitating youth engagement and empowerment to achieve sustainable rural development and successful land reform.

The Department has furthermore mobilized rural women through the Self-Help Groups-Saving Model, e.g. “Dipontwana and through the formation of Cooperatives. 598 Women have been mobilized

Training were conducted in areas such as awareness raising on women’s rights, training in agricultural products and animal care, vegetable gardening, hydroponics, animal husbandry, indigenous seed training, and lavender. 891 Women benefitted from this. In addition to this, 1236 Women have been trained in arts and crafts. They have also exhibited their arts and crafts at various exhibitions country wide which lead to exports to an international market.

Through the advocacy and exchange programmes, women are afforded opportunities to engage with departmental staff members in order to influence developmental processes and undertake exchange programmes, where women learn from each other. 3403 Women have engaged in these advocacy and exchange programmes.

Women actively participate in the decision-making in their rural areas through structures such as the Council of Stakeholders.
