We talk to a representative of The Carpenter's Shop about the work the charity does.

South Africa has one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, and in the Western Cape alone 48% of youth under the age of 25 is currently unemployed. In Cape Town, as Afternoon Express has previously learned, homelessness and unemployment is especially problematic.

Today, we're chatting to James MacDonald, social enterprise manager for The Carpenter's Shop, a charity organisation that offers vocational training for the homeless so that they can have a better chance of finding work. Training includes but is not limited to, car detailing and carpentry.
