sabba incubator glenhills (SIG)

objectives of the SABBA INCUBATOR GLENHILLS (SIG)

 

  • to facilitate sustainable, values-based community development.
  • to provide 6 months’ skills training by SABBA champions to at least a total of 300 unemployed and underemployed per year.
  • to provide previously unemployed and underemployed SABBA members access to entrepreneurial skills, linking them to the local labour market and where possible to national and global markets.
  • to facilitate multi-stakeholder engagement and encourage multi-sector action in the wider Glenhills community.

 

beneficiaries

 

unemployed, underemployed, or unskilled people aged between 18 and 35 years old.

 

strategy

 

providing a sustainably built incubator where the un- and underemployed, the unskilled (mostly depending on state grants, from 18 to 35 years old) develop skills to become economically active and financially independent by being trained by SABBA champions.

 

sustainability

 

the SABBA MOVEMENT’s activities are based on four basic sustainability principles:

  • only extract from the earth’s crust as much as nature can manage
  • only introduce to nature substances that nature can manage
  • ensure nature’s ability to sustain itself
  • meet human needs – What does this mean?

 

 


 

activities based on the SIG objectives

 

  • to facilitate sustainable, values-based community development in five year cycles in the Steve Biko Phase 2-suburb for the sake of the economically most vulnerable inhabitants, starting from 2020 to 2024 with at least 1500 people per five year cycle. Participants are introduced to the values of servanthood, honesty and respect by leaders of the community, and those who agree to adhere to these values become members of the SABBA Movement. The first cycle of five years is evaluated, improved and repeated until extreme poverty is eradicated in the Steve Biko phase 2-area.
  • to provide 6 months’ skills training by SABBA champions to at least a total of 300 un- and underemployed South Africans and to foreigners with work permits, free of charge; both groups adhering to the SABBA core values. Beneficiaries are primarily between 18 and 35 years old, living  in informal or subsidized housing. These beneficiaries  are members of the SABBA Movement. Skills include: basic business skills, carpentry, welding, electrical repairs, catering, sewing, running an internet café, beauty salon and a vegetable market.
  • to provide previously un- and underemployed SABBA members access to the local labour market by enabling them to manufacture and sell products, or render services that are relevant to the local market, having learnt a skill/s over 6 months while working as a volunteer with a SABBA Champion. The newly trained SABBA member then has the option of becoming a SABBA champion after 6 months, creating in turn his/her own revenue while training a new SABBA member. SABBA champions earn the profit of the products that they manufacture. SABBA champions and SABBA trainees pay rent, electricity and water during their six months’ tenure, of R100.00 per person per month. Success, is revenue generated and not a certificate. SABBA Champions use their own tools to manufacture products to be sold at the local SABBA market and to possible contacts that the SABBA MOVEMENT may have. SABBA Champions prepare their exit while working at the SIG, leave after 6 months after having gained experience in the skills training industry and having had to manage and train a small team of 15 labourers and run a small business. The impact of these outcomes is that extreme poverty in the Glenhills area is being eradicated.
  • to enable SABBA members of the Steve Biko Phase 2 suburb to host courses and/or events at the SIG such as adult literacy classes, children’s homework clubs, art exhibitions, talent competitions and other cultural events that would contribute to a community that takes care of one another.
  • to facilitate multi-stakeholder engagement and encourage multi-sector action in the wider Glenhills community to promote healthy living at all times. Invite the department of Health in promoting healthy living by hosting regular workshops on current health issues such as drug abuse, nutrition, teen pregnancies, or as suggested by the local Glenhills clinic. The aim of these workshops will be to allow the community to be better informed about their health and to minimize the workload of health workers over the long term.

monitoring and evaluation

 

the SABBA MOVEMENT uses measures of execution (inputs, activities and outputs) as well as measures of change (outcomes and impact) in its actionable measurement matrix for monitoring and evaluation purposes.

 

SIG budget

 

the building, set-up, running and administrative costs are R4 million. A detailed budget is available on request.
