How long does it take to apply for a NYDA Grant?

Young people are advised to visit a branch or district office that is nearest to them to go through a pre-assessment process before they apply for a grant.

This is to establish if you meet the qualifying criteria and to assess the nature of your business and enroll you through our Business Management Training.

The entire process could take up to 30 days.

Can NPO’s be assisted?

The NYDA receives daily requests from young people, schools, community centres or NGO’s seeking assistance.

We acknowledge that we cannot assist every young person in need however, in response to these once-off solicitations, the agency allocates an annual budget through the

Thusano Fund. The Fund functions over and above the organisations’ sponsorships and is aimed at assisting small scale, immediate necessities.

Does NYDA assist with a Business Plan?

The Entrepreneurship Development Programme is aimed at creating a conducive environment for young entrepreneurs to access relevant entrepreneurship skills, knowledge, values and attitudes for their businesses.

Through the Business Management Training, we offer approved and accredited training by ILO, The International Labour Organisation.

Start Your Business (SYB) is the largest global business management training programme.

It assists small scale entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses and create employment.

The course offers a 5-day training that also covers how to prepare a business plan.

Over and above the training the NYDA provides additional assistance through the Business Consultancy Services Programme, through which aspiring or existing entrepreneurs are assisted with various interventions including developing a business plan.
