Libraries of Hope: Our groundbreaking job-creation collaboration with the National Library of South Africa

Lulaway & the National Library of South Africa are launching a ground-breaking job creation initiative to bring economic opportunities to local communities.

The partnership between Lulaway and the NLSA will see 27 community libraries house Job Readiness Centres, with a further 300 earmarked for rollout in 2018.

Each of these job centers will offer job seekers the opportunity to register their full CVs, for no charge, on the Lulaway online database and apply for available vacancies. These libraries will provide free access to economic opportunities, and will play a pivotal role in bridging the divide between the unemployed and sustainable livelihoods.

The project aims to capitalise on the technology provided through the NLSA’s Msanzi Online Project and Lulaway’s Job Portal. The official project launch will take place on 12th September 2017 at the Sharpeville Library.
