Our impact

70% of all Fit for Life, Fit for Work participants are successful in either finding work or finding a bursary for vocational training.

In 2010 the Etafeni Trust won a prestigious award from the Impumelelo Innovations Trust for the Fit for Life, Fit for Work programme.  We can see that the programme has borne fruit and we, the F4LF4W centres, are committed to making the programme available to many thousands more young men and women in Southern Africa.
