This incubation program works with university students who have graduated from Elethu Ilifa Incubation program. BEEP charges R200 a month from its targeted members (university students) and R100 monthly from their parents for the services rendered.

Elethu ILifa accept and recruits members mainly from BEEP’s primary school program who are going to grade 8 and work with them university and beyond. Those who join as members contribute R100 monthly for the services they will get from the Incubation program.

This incubation program is centred on nurturing and further developing its junior members with their personal development, like boosting their self-esteem, enhance their communication skills, reinforce their leadership development. This is done through Leadership in Action Trainings’ where they assist with the facilitation of the daily environmental workshops in different primary schools. Elethu ILifa Incubation also provide each member with a mentor and the mentors are also required to make at least 4 home visits a year. The purpose of the home visits is to assess its members behaviour outside its program, like in their homes, in their communities.

 

Those members who are doing grade 10 and 11, are in-charge of the running daily environmental workshops in 8 as part of their “Leadership in Action Training”. And they are assisted by those junior members who are doing grade 8 and 9. Those members who are doing grade 12 are required to sole focus in their studies and that, they are provided with private tutors, for all their subjects. This is the system that produces a pool of young green leaders, young green entrepreneurs, young visionary leaders and green professionals. The incubation has over 165 members from grade 8 to grade 12 and this is a self-sufficient project.
