Sinethemba Hlengwa – Founder Director of Youth Council of Shipping Africa

YCSA is founded by 5 educated and aspiring women in the maritime industry as an NPO to create awareness about careers in maritime among previously disadvantaged youths. YCSA’s other mandate is to support and enhance the development of an efficient and productive SA maritime industry benchmarked against global standards. The chamber is also working at establishing a research council to facilitate innovation and development while enhancing knowledge and competency within the maritime industry. YCSA is a first of its kind as a youth based organization in the shipping industry in not only SA but also Africa as a whole. This makes the chamber a force to be reckoned with and collaboration with SASTALC will indeed strengthen both organizations’ mandates to serve the country and the region. It hasn’t been an easy journey as some experiences exposed the chamber to a lack of support, more especially from women within the industry. Therefore a great thank you and appreciation to Brenda and her efforts for activelyengaging withYCSA and taking them under her wing as a mentor.The YCSA has pledged its support to SASTALC and is committed to working together with the council to achieve the common vision and mission of improving the country’s supply chains and uplifting them to world best standards”
