The Creating Opportunity for South Africa's Youth (COSY) project aims to enable young people, particularly young women, in peri-urban and rural areas to be more active agents in achieving sustainable growth in South Africa by building their capacity to become entrepreneurs and by increasing their employability.

Activities will focus on creative, digital and social enterprise and include a mapping exercise, a training programme, a mentoring and coaching programme, cultural exchanges, a series of public events as well as financial support.

The main target groups are young people aged 15-25 years, community leaders as well as civil society organisations in peri-urban and rural communities. The project draws on the strength and expertise of all its partners who have extensive experience in different areas of youth development in South Africa.
