About the Amy Foundation
The Amy Foundation is a non-profit organisation that offers
programmes to develop and empower youth aged between five
and 35 living in challenged and vulnerable communities in the
Western Cape. The foundation’s initiatives include Academic
Support, Life Skills and After School programmes. Five after
school care centres are located in Gugulethu, Nyanga, Philippi,
Bonteheuwel and Khayelithsha.
The Amy Foundation’s Literacy Programme aims to advance low literacy levels among
pre-school and primary school students. One of our biggest challenges in South Africa is
the high risk of unemployment among young adults and school leavers. To address this,
The Amy Foundation offers skills development programmes to equip youngsters with ‘soft
skills’, vocational skills, and experience to better prepare them for the job market.
SAPICS trained unemployed women to mark Women’s Month
The ‘Professional Processor Practitioner in
Supply Chain Management’ designation
is the starting block for individuals
wanting to be recognised as supply chain
professionals. The women were all given
Processor level membership of SAPICS
after completing the Supply Chain 101
course and were all encouraged to
achieve the first level of professional
designation. To date, eight of the
trainees have earned their professional
designation. It is SAPICS’ hope that by
earning this designation, they will be able
to demonstrate to future employers their
level of commitment to the profession and
to their own professional development.
APICS partnered with long-time
education partner, the Centre
for Logistics Excellence (CLX),
to run the one-day “Supply Chain 101”
programme for the women, who were all
required to have a matric certificate and
been previously employed for at least one
We are proud to have enabled them to
take the first step towards entering the
supply chain profession as recognised
supply chain practitioners as the Supply
Chain 101 course is a prerequisite for
SAPICS’s newly launched entry level
professional designation.
