Empowering the youth

According to Project Coordinator, Thabani Khathi this project has been taking place for over 2 years in uMkhanyakude, Zululand, UGu and UMzinyathi Districts. The approach is structured such that the targeted group is involved in formal and accredited skills programme learning where they actively participate in the practical construction site. As a result, towards the end of their involvement at the construction site, they are capacitated with business or entrepreneurial skills. The latter is conducted as a means to ensure that programme beneficiaries establish their own businesses in the future.

The group that started training in November is set to complete in April.
