The programme is aimed at contributing towards the education of the aspiring and determined youth of the King Cetshwayo District.
‘Skills development is a national priority in South Africa and a critical factor to the future success of the country,’ said the organisation.
The programme is a direct response to government’s calls for reform in the ‘scare skills’ disciplines and aims to redress imbalances in these fields.
