The Sandfire Youth Development Program

Sandfire has recently introduced the Sandfire Youth Development Program (YDP) which provides training and employment opportunities to Youths within our local communities in Botswana. The program represents Sandfire’s commitment to it’s “Youth Development” pillar within our Motheo Community Framework, and supports the Ghanzi District in reducing its high unemployment rate within the region.

Each intake of the YDP occurs on a 6-monthly basis, and offers three youths the opportunity to work within Exploration, Lab, SHE or Procurement for a 12-month period, with the potential to grow into a permanent opportunity with Sandfire. This program offers individuals a tailored development pathway aimed at supporting skill development and future career opportunities.

Congratulations to our first entrants of the Youth Development Program.
