Taking community upliftment through entrepreneurial development to the next level, the Thabo Community Action Trust (TCAT) is launching the ROOTs Traders Club and ROOTs Youth road shows in a fun and entertaining evening at the Windmill Casino on 01 August 2013. Join a representative of Free State’s Regional Government who will officially launch the initiatives at the event.
The Thabo Community Action Trust (TCAT) is an organisation aimed at providing sustainable socio-economic upliftment and development through social entrepreneurship programmes for communities in the Thaba’Nchu and Botshabelo areas. TCAT will launch the ROOTs Traders Club and ROOTs Youth road shows as part of their on-going effort to help equip these communities with the entrepreneurial skills needed for them to be self-sufficient.
The ROOTs Youth educational road show is an interactive and entertaining entrepreneurial development show with a local flavour. Driven by the communities of Thaba’Nchu and Botshabelo, it aims to encourage the youth in these areas to think about becoming entrepreneurially savvy for a purposeful and prosperous life, by breaking the chain of reliance and taking action and responsibility for their own destiny.
The ROOTs Traders Club is a community owned entity which provides a platform for small business owners in the disadvantaged communities of Thaba’Nchu and Botshabelo to connect and share their entrepreneurial experiences on a regular basis at scheduled meetings, and receive expert coaching and mentoring from external supporters. This business owner network creates an inter-connected support system and encourages further entrepreneurial development in these areas.
