20140718 EndeavorSA MandelaDay IMG 0665 300Cape Town, 17 July 2014 – Endeavor South Africa teamed up with entrepreneurs Capsicum Culinary Studio and BrandsEye to make an important impact on Mandela Day.

Capsicum Culinary School is an Endeavor Alumni Entrepreneur and the largest chef school in Southern Africa. Capsicum used their facilities to encourage and inspire individuals to make a difference to fellow human beings - the aim of Mandela Day. Endeavor candidate BrandsEye, a leading online monitoring & insights tool to track online conversations, offered the services of 12 employees to assist in this cause and, together, made soup which was then distributed to the Cape Town Society for the Blind.

The Cape Town Society for the Blind provides blind and visually impaired people “with specialised skills development and employment opportunities that will enhance their lives so that they may become independent, self sufficient and empowered members of our society.” The society’s mission is an extremely important one that is critical to the lives of its members. Capsicum Culinary Studio, BrandsEye and Endeavor are all thrilled to have been able to make a small difference to an organisation which provides hope and support to so many.

Endeavor South Africa, a non-profit organisation focused on the growth of high-impact entrepreneurs, aims to continue to leverage the giveback nature of its network to make a difference on this proudly South African day.

Deanne Friis-Smith, Portfolio Manager of Endeavor South Africa, says, “Endeavor South Africa is always honoured to be part of something that makes a positive difference to people’s lives. We are proud to be associated with Capsicum Culinary Studio and BrandsEye and thank them for the opportunity to celebrate Mandela’s name.”

The shortage of skilled young chefs in the tourism sector may soon be a thing of the past as students graduate from the National Department of Tourism’s National Youth Chefs Training Programme (NYCTP).

According to eturbonews.com, the National Department of Tourism’s National Tourism Sector Strategy has, among other things, identified a need to address critical and scarce skills shortages in the tourism sector. It will do this by training and building capacity among unemployed youth and graduates.

The Department has invested R39 million through government’s Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) to train 1 300 unemployed youth between the ages of 18 and 34. It has partnered with the South African Chefs Association (SACA) to implement the training programme through their 27 registered SACA culinary schools, one of which is Endeavor Entrepreneur Cheryl Nesbitt’s Capsicum Culinary Studio.
