Would you love to…
Make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged learners?
Give a student a new opportunity and an achievable dream for their future?
The Demartini Institute partners with education organizations such as CIDA City University (www.cida.co.za) whose students come from historically disadvantaged backgrounds and brings students from these organisations into Dr John Demartini’s one day Young Adults Inspired Destiny Program.
As an official Demartini Institute partner, CIDA City University assists the Demartini Institute in identifying students from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential for leadership and therefore qualify for specialist educational programmes.The Demartini Institue has invited CIDA students to participate in Young Adults Inspired Destiny since 2007 and Dr Demartini annually presents talks to the students of the university.
About CIDA City University
CIDA City Campus (CIDA), based in Johannesburg, is the first virtually free higher education institution in South Africa, offering holistic education to historically disadvantaged youth who would not otherwise be able to access higher education. CIDA has emerged as the abiding hope for underprivileged students who have a desire to pursue a university level education. The university is driven to develop the infinite potential of every student regardless of his or her background.
CIDA not only offers marginalised school leavers a unique opportunity to achieve their dreams while also helping to break the bonds of inter-generational poverty, but also aims to transform these students into leaders within their communities who will then advance the socio-economic transformation of the country. This is through the Extranet programme – a compulsory module in the curriculum where students have to be part of community initiatives that seek to educate, inform and encourage scholars to pursue their tertiary studies, and to also teach the community at large new skills and more about entrepreneurial initiatives.
Founded in 2000, CIDA has to date, qualified over 1000 graduates in its primary offering of a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree.
Through a number of partnerships with some of our donors, CIDA has enabled its graduates to become competitive in the market place, with most of them joining the banking and investment industries, and other key sectors of the South African economy.
CIDA’s donors and partners help uplift the lives of many disempowered South African youth and thus improve the county’s economic participation globally, and also equip those who were previously disadvantaged with relevant and marketable skills. CIDA’s BBA degree is fully accredited by the Council on Higher Education (CHE) of South Africa and is recorded on Level 6 of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA).
