Annual Report 2015

2015 presented many new opportunities for the organisation. Not least of which was receiving the MetLife Foundation's Annual Entrepreneurial Award which saw JA South Africa win a cash prize of $25,000 which we committed to further development of our Digital Enterprise Programme.

In keeping with such digital developments, we present to you our 2015 Annual Report in digital format.

We are proud of our achievements during 2015 - none of which would have been possible without the commitment of our staff, agents, facilitators and our Board Members who unfailingly contribute their time and expertise to the organisation.  And of course, none of what we do will be possible without the generous funding we receive from corporates and individuals. Thank you!

We hope you enjoy the read and please do pass the link along to colleagues and friends who you think may be interested in learning more about JA South Africa.
