WeThinkCode_ is seeking small and medium company partners to join its SME Placement Programme, which places its students as interns in partner companies during their work placement period.  

The Programme is aimed specifically at SMEs that need skilled junior software developers who can assist in house technical staff during two work placements. An added advantage is that partner companies have first option to hire graduates on completion of their studies.

Students enter the SME Placement Programme with their tuition fees, valued at R100 000 per learner, already sponsored.  All the SME partner companies have to pay is the internship stipend. 

The programme is a win-win for both the SME, which need additional resources for their digital projects and the students, who need vital on the job experience,” says Nyari Samushonga, CEO of WeThinkCode_.

Certain conditions apply: partners need to be registered companies with 250 or fewer employees and turnover of under R85-million a year.  Partner companies must also have a senior technical resource to support the students.  There are two internship periods during the course, namely three months from March to May of 2021 and four months from February to May, 2022. The stipulated internship stipend is R7 000 per month.  

The skill sets that a WeThinkCode_ intern brings to the business will enable them to add value, for example, in the following areas:

• Working with the existing software development teams to enhance and extend existing custom software, particularly if you have Python or Java codebases;

• Extend or write tests for your codebase;

• Write documentation;

• Investigate and experiment with new tools and technologies that the existing team may not have the capacity to do.

The students should be matched with a senior tech person in the company.  Continuous learning is encouraged, with the peer-to-peer, practical, pedagogy ensuring that students are primed to pick up new programming languages quickly.

Full time employment for the current group of students begins on 1 June, 2022 and hosting SME partners have first right to hire on a minimum one year commitment after the student’s graduation at the end of the programme.

Each year, WeThinkCode_ trains 300 talented young South Africans to become highly skilled software developers in a two-year programme and the internship phases are an essential part of the course.  

“We are all about finding top talent, no matter where they are from or what they have done before.  Our course is completely cost-free to students, no prior coding experience is required and a Matric is optional,” Samushonga says.

“We work closely with big players in the tech industry, many of whom are corporate sponsors and fund the programmes.  In this way, WeThinkCode_ ensures that the training offered is up-to-the-minute by using cutting-edge technologies that solve today’s problems. The approach to facilitating the learning experience is dynamic and future-forward,” she adds.

WeThinkCode_ has an enviable record of success in training software programmers.  “Our junior software developers have a 98% graduate employment rate, with our alumni working in more than 55 leading South African businesses at present.    

This SME Placement Programme is a unique opportunity to bring highly skilled junior software developers into your business while at the same time providing an essential internship environment that will ensure their eventual success.  This is a unique, dynamic synergy of learning, job creation and value-add now. It’s a win-win!” Samushonga concludes.

Applications for interns close on 30 November 2020 on a first-come-first-serve basis. The matching process will kick off in December 2020 with interviews held in January, 2021. The first round of work placement will be from 1 March, 2021 to 31 May, 2021, the second round from 1 February, 2022 to 31 May, 2022.  Full-time employment begins on 1 June, 2022.

How Covid-19 affects children's education

Sunday, November 22, 2020 - 13:54Author: Lauren Chawula

This World's Children's Day some light is shed on the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on children and their development.

Article Category: News

All schools across the country were forced to adopt an online format of learning as lockdown regulations due to Covid-19 made it difficult for education to take its regular course. 

Many children in South Africa were unable to afford to learn this way and this negatively impacted the way they received their education. 

"That is a reality that not only learners living in rural areas or in townships had to experience, when you look at the upper middle class as well, the internet became more of a necessity than actual food in the fridge." said Ntsako Mhlanga a Children's Rights Advocate.

She states that Covid-19 exposed the injustices and barriers in education children had to experience as learning was based online and inaccessible to the vast majority. This is because a large amount of South African households do not have internet connectivity as they cannot afford it. 

She explains that World Children's Day is not so much of a celebration yet but rather a reminder of the work that still needs to be done for children so that they receive a quality education and develop well all around. 

"Looking at the different learners who couldn't access education, I felt like our telecommunication networks could have done something about that, I'm not saying nothing was done but I felt like more could be done to accommodate South Africa at large." says Mhlanga. 

Many schools across South Africa don't have the proper infrastructure for learners to remain safe while at school, some having lost their lives by going to unsafe pit hole bathrooms. This poor infrastructure and many other factors negatively affect the quality of education received by learners.  

Mhlanga emphasizes that a quality education encompasses things like proper infrastructure, internet connectivity, social justice, social development and transport. 

"Once we start as a people looking at education with more of a holistic view, that education is the center but we have different departments around it that need to also focus on their part in education... then we can celebrate World Children's Day and look at education from a quality perspective." Mhlanga argues. 

She encourages leaders from all aspects to reflect on what they are doing to contribute to the future leaders of this country especially when it comes to education. 

She concludes:

"Education is everyone's problem."

Five days of mourning for COVID-19 and GBVF victims

Sunday, November 22, 2020 - 12:53Author: Lauren Chawula

South Africans are called to undertake five days of mourning to honour the memory of those who have lost their lives to the Covid-19 pandemic and Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF).

Article Category: News

The five days of mourning commences on Wednesday, 25 November until Sunday, 29 November 2020. 

“All national flags will fly at half-mast during the five days of mourning in a united move to honour all those who have succumbed to COVID-19, gender-based violence and femicide,” said Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola. 

The Covid-19 pandemic and its effects has caused a loss of lives and jobs across the world. Despite the hard lockdowns implemented to slow the spread of the virus, 1,34 million lives have been lost worldwide with more than 20 000 of those coming from South Africa. 

The effects of the lockdown meant that many had to stay home and experience a decline in income or retrenchment from their jobs.

This also meant that many victims of GBVF (mostly women and children) were forced to remain indoors with their perpetrators and many lost their lives as a result of this. 

Many protests were organized in an attempt to get the South African government to take this seriously, which did see the president announcing that more shelters would be opened across the country to safeguard victims of GBVF.   

While there has been a drop in the number of sexual offences reported between July and September 2020, the misfortune of GBVF continues to torment women and children in the country. 

President Cyril Ramaphosa previously stated that South Africa was amidst two devastating epidemics: the coronavirus and what he described as the 'war on women'. 

“As we look back on a year of much pain and sorrow, it is important as a nation that we should honour and remember all those who have succumbed to this disease,” President Cyril Ramaphosa said when he took to the podium on 11 November 2020

“It will be appropriate that during the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children – which is the second pandemic we are confronting – we demonstrate our remembrance of all those who have departed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and gender-based violence,” he added. 

It is important that South Africans do everything they can to curb the spread of the virus and prevent even more deaths from occurring. 

After 5 269 062 tests conducted in total, South Africa now has a total of 765 409 confirmed cases of COVID-19. 2 646 of these cases were confirmed in the last 24 hours. 

The death toll from COVID-19 stands at 20 845, an increase of 86 deaths since yesterday's update.

Recoveries are now at 707 784.

South Africa has a recovery rate of 92.5%.

"In a united move to honour and remember all those who have succumbed to COVID-19 and GBVF, all citizens are encouraged to wear attires and ornaments which symbolise mourning based on their culture, tradition and religious belief,” said Minister Ronald Lamola.

Ramaphosa calls for all countries to receive Covid-19 vaccine

Sunday, November 22, 2020 - 11:35Author: Lauren Chawula

President Cyril Ramaphosa pleaded with G20 Leaders at an annual summit to ensure that all countries have access to the Covid-19 vaccine once it is available.

Article Category: News

In a two-day annual summit facilitated by Saudi Arabia, President Ramaphosa addressed fellow G20 leaders on the inclusivity of the recently announced Covid-19 vaccines which are not yet available for use in clinics. 

"Another immediate task for the G20 is to ensure that there is equitable and affordable access for all countries to the Covid-19 vaccine once it is developed,”

-President Cyril Ramaphosa

In the African continent, South Africa has been hit the hardest by the Covid-19 pandemic with over 20 000 deaths and over 700 000 confirmed cases. Thus, it is important that all countries are provided with the vaccine to ensure a global recovery from the virus. 

"I would like to call upon the G20 countries to assist with the funding shortfalls for the access to COVID-19 tools accelerator to ensure that this platform is able to deliver on its mandate," Ramaphosa said.

"Let us all continue to work together in the spirit of solidarity and cooperation to ensure that the global recovery is inclusive." Ramaphosa states. 

 The coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer has an efficacy of 95%, while the Moderna vaccine reduced the risk of contracting the virus by 94,5%.

A health systems advisor at World Health Organisation (WHO), Rajesh Narwal, believes that there will be a rush by nations to secure stock of these vaccines.  

“The point is that already a lot of these vaccines have already been pre procured by wealthier nations,” said Narwal at a webinar that discussed the implications of an international Covid-19 vaccine policy. 

There is a general fear that Western countries would receive the vaccine first while African and other Third World countries will receive it later. 

Narwal anticipates the arrival of the vaccine in South Africa by either the first quarter of 2021 but more likely in the second quarter. 

When the vaccine arrives, South Africa like countries around the world are set to take a phased approach. This would see health professionals being prioritised, followed by the elderly and people with comorbidities and then other essential workers and the rest of the population. 

“This access needs to be done in such a way that it does not put strain on economies and the people,” Narwal adds. 

Khadija Jamaloodien of the National Department of Health, said that the government has put measures in place to facilitate the arrival of a vaccine.

“The goal is to have access to and supply a safe and an effective Covid-19 vaccine,” Jamaloodien said. 

However, experts say that if South Africa were to manufacture Covid-19 vaccines it would be very costly. 

“To build capacity across Africa we need to take into account that we need R2 billion to establish a facility that can fill 500 million doses, and to put this facility together will take two years.” said Glaudina Loots, the director for Health Innovation at the Department of Science and Technology.

 An additonal R2 billion would be required to manufacture the vaccines. 

Narwal warned that while we await the highly anticipated arrival of the vaccine next year, health authorities and South Africans should guard against virus fatigue as the festive season approaches. 

Everyone is advised to keep washing and sanitizing their hands, to steer clear of crowded spaces and to continue to wear their masks out in public spaces to prevent the spread of the virus.

Global Gig Economy hit hard by COVID-19

Sunday, November 22, 2020 - 10:23Author: Lauren Chawula

The gig economy has been gravely affected by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, as lockdown regulations hinder its activities.  

Advertisement

Article Category: News

The gig economy is based around untraditional employment in which temporary positions, freelancing and short-term employment are common. Independent workers are hired to work for an organization only for a short period of time. 

This type of economy was said to be fast-growing and was expected to grow exponentially this year, however this growth was short-lived when the effects of the coronavirus pandemic began earlier this year. 

A recent report named The Digital Hustle: Gig Worker Financial Lives Under Pressure, published by a fintech investment platform, Flourish, detailed the financial effects and lifestyle impacts on the workers in the gig economy in South Africa, India, Indonesia, Brazil and the USA. 

3 195 workers were surveyed from May 2020 to August 2020, with 605 of these workers coming from South Africa. 

The research showed that 66% of gig workers around the world reported that they experienced a decline in income, with ridesharing drivers from platforms like Uber and Lyft being hit the hardest. 

“The gig economy has created an alternative source of income for many people away from the 9am to 5pm jobs. Covid-19 disrupted the models in e hailing, online deliveries and the general gig economy. We saw similar trends and insights in terms of the impact of the pandemic in South Africa, India, Indonesia, Brazil and USA”, said Ameya Upadhyay, Venture Partner at Flourish Ventures.

91% of workers interviewed in South Africa were very concerned about Covid-19. They were mostly concerned about the effects of the pandemic on their ability to earn a living and the risk that it posed to their family's health. 

In South Africa more than half of the gig workers reduced household expenses, nearly half borrowed money and almost three out of four had to rely on savings. This was a common trend in Brazil, Indonesia and the USA as well. However, gig workers in India experienced financial cushioning as a result of a strong savings culture, so 83% relied on their savings and 15% found new or additional work. 

“With many economies now reopening, we hope to see the gig sector become more vibrant. Operations are obviously going to change in terms of adhering to health protocols in different countries but the industry should be flexible enough to take on board the changing consumer behaviour,” Ameya stated.

Flourish anticipates that the gig economy will experience continued growth as its dynamic nature will make it flexible enough to change and allow workers to find the best way to fit into this digital workforce as lockdown regulations ease across the world. 

“In our post pandemic world, the gig economy is going to become more important and more vital, especially in Africa. Gig work is becoming increasingly important as a potential pathway to socio-economic development and employment creation, given Africa’s unique status as the continent with the youngest population but the highest youth unemployment rate," said Ameya.

Entrepreneur Speaks To Western Cape Government

Saturday, November 21, 2020 - 13:38Author: Raigan Cloete

Alexandria Proctor, CEO and Co-Founder of DigsConnect, spoke to the Western Cape parliament about enabling the enablers. The future of the country is in the hands of our youth, which is why they should be given opportunities to flourish.

Article Category: News

At the moment the world is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic which has negatively affected the country’s economy. Not to mention the youth unemployment rate continues to increase.

Proctor points out that South Africans are creators, builders, protesters, hustlers, and travel makers. They are the people that make a change in the nation.

She believes that entrepreneurs are the enablers and that they will rebuild the economy with the support from government.

Lockdown took away the opportunity for entrepreneurs to make a difference in the country, which is why Proctor urges government to not implement a second lockdown.

With the help of government, entrepreneurs like Proctor can help the youth of South Africa reach their potential and decrease the unemployment rate.

The way forward for the Western Cape would be to purse education, which will enable youth to follow their dreams and change the future of the nation.

Western Cape is the technology hotspot and is often led by young entrepreneurs. Since the fourth industrial revolution is approaching, she believes that the youth could build the future and impact millions of South Africans positively through technology.

Parliament could work with Tech companies which will enable the enablers.

SASSA Fights Fraud

Saturday, November 21, 2020 - 12:05Author: Raigan Cloete

Since lockdown was implemented, SASSA beneficiaries have encountered many social grant frauds. Which is why SASSA has been determined to stop these scammers.

Article Category: News

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has developed a fraud prevention strategy and exercises zero tolerance to any person who commits fraud in the social grant environment.

SASSA received reports that more than 1 500 City of Johannesburg employees were recipients of COVID-19 social grants, which were meant for unemployed South Africans.

“It is precisely because of the implementation of this strategy that the City of Johannesburg employees were identified. In addition, SASSA and the City of Johannesburg have been co-operating on this matter since July 2020,” said SASSA CEO, Totsie Memela.

The strategy also revealed that 4 726 social grant beneficiaries withdrew their payments outside the South African borders during the lockdown period. Which meant that those recipients were residents in neighbouring countries.

On Friday a statement was released which mentioned that these payments were suspended in September, as grant recipients need to be in South Africa.

Beneficiaries are encouraged to always be honest and update SASSA if their financial circumstances change.

Memela further added that through the implementation of the special relief grant of R350 per month, SASSA has been able to access databases from other government departments to validate the income of applicants for the grant.

“The relationships developed during this pandemic will greatly assist SASSA in strengthening its validation processes, even for the long-term social grants in the future. This will enable checks to be done to ensure that the financial information provided is complete and that grants are indeed provided to those who qualify for the grants,” she reiterated.

Furthermore, every citizen in this country has a responsibility to report wrongdoing and this extends to the reporting of grants being received by citizens who do not qualify for them.

“Unfortunately, it appears that it is acceptable for citizens to take from government with impunity as it is government money and there is plenty more where that comes from rather than to understand that the money being used is taxpayers’ money.

“Everyone who receives what they are not entitled to is in fact taking away from someone who depends on that money.”

SASSA said it will continue to call on citizens to report the misuse and incorrect payment of social grants and promised to continue preventing fraud.

DigsConnect is one of the largest student accommodation platforms in South Africa. Their CEO and Co-Founder, Alexandria Proctor, spoke to the Western Cape parliament about the accommodation sector in the country and the phased return of students to accommodations and their campus.

Alexandria Proctor points out how the Western Cape is the technology hotspot and is often led by young entrepreneurs. Since the fourth industrial revolution is approaching, she believes that they are building the future and impacting millions of South Africans positively through their technology.

They would like for parliament to join them in their initiative to rebuild the economy. They believe that collaborating with the government would provide them with the opportunity to produce work in a sector that would uplift the economy.

Since lockdown levels have eased up, students have started returning to campus, which is the perfect opportunity for them to use DigsConnect to find accommodation.

Digsconnect prides themselves in connecting students with student accommodation close to their college or university. Their goal is to build a self-sustaining community that shares their vision of creating a constantly-evolving platform where students are able to connect with like-minded people in a safe environment.

Finding accommodation is made easy by visiting DigsConnect.com. All they have to do is create a profile on the website, choose the place that suits their finances and needs, and then wait for a reply from the landlord.

Landlords are also able to add their properties to the website, where students can find them easy. The process to add properties begins with the landlords setting up a profile and complete the “Add Digs” process.

EFF Protest At Brackenfell High Turns Violent

Friday, November 20, 2020 - 13:45Author: Simbongile Makanda

Stun grenades and police are not what you would expect at a peaceful protest. Following allegations of racism at Brackenfell High School in Cape Town, the EFF decided to protest outside the school but things got out of hand quickly.

The Economic Freedom Front (EFF) planned to carry out a peaceful protest to the school with 100 participants. The turnout was bigger than expected and police used stun grenades to disperse the crowd that gathered near the school too early.

The permit only allowed for 100 people to go near the school while being escorted by the police. There was some confusion in the crowd as the police told the EFF that the rest of the crowd would have to be left behind while the memorandum was being handed over. 

The EFF hoped to hand over a memorandum to the school, following the incident which took place a few weeks ago. 

The protest follows allegations of racism which broke out after a group of parents at Brackenfell High School held a matric dance which only included white learners at the school. 

Some parties have taken different sides, as the Democratic Alliance did not regard it as a race issue. Western Cape Education MEC, Debbie Schäfer has been against the EFF and members of the public protesting near the school. 

"I call on Brackenfell residents not to gather at the school with a view to engaging in altercations. Any action that would escalate tensions further will make it harder for law enforcement authorities to do their jobs. Please do not take the law into your own hands." said MEC Debbie Schäfer in a statement. 

The EFF, however has continued with its protest action despite the school denying allegations of racism.

Matric Rage Is Reconsidered Since COVID-19 Cases Rise

Friday, November 20, 2020 - 12:54Author: Raigan Cloete

Matric Rage is an event which is traditionally held on Garden Route. It is closely being monitored by the Western Cape government as COVID-19 cases continue to increase in the area.

The increase in infections, hospitalisations, and deaths have caused the Western Cape government to worry.

These cases have risen in George, Knysna, Thembalethu, Plettenberg Bay, Pacaletsdorp, and Mossel Bay, according to Premier Alan Winde.

“There are currently 159 people hospitalised in the region in both private and public care, and 26 in critical care,” says Winde.

77% of the people who tested positive for COVID-19 had no idea where they got infected.

However, the other 23% said that they contracted the virus at a social event or at home.

Which is why the premier is so concerned about cases increasing when young people take part in Matric Rage.

The Garden Route is very popular for thousands of matrics looking to celebrate the end of their Grade 12 year. 

According to Winde, the Western Cape government’s hotspot team and the health department will ensure that these events comply with regulations and safety protocols.

The teams in Garden Route will be working hard to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, through community screening, testing, contact tracing , and communication campaigns.

Western Cape residents are asked to make safe choices and to wear a mask when out in public.
