Training in Communities
Mandi Nokrayo – 8 years of Training within Communities. Qualifications: Computer Diploma and 2 year Business Management Diploma
Providing training in the community has been a highlight. To see growth in people who have not had the opportunity to develop in various areas, is so rewarding.
Mini-computer centres are set up in the homes of the people in Masiphumelele and Capricorn Park. Computers that people have donated, are used for training and where possible are given to the students.
There are two conditions.
- One: that they show commitment to learning
- Two: to teach their children and teach a neighbour
Small businesses are started by typing out quotes, CV’s, letters.
Without the support of Perry from WP Computing, who spends hours of his time putting together computers for people to use, these centres of learning would not operate.
How you can help? We need second hand computers that work. Please be on the lookout and contact us. Together we can make a difference. Sponsorship for people to do computer courses is also needed.
