Welcome to the Skills2Work Newsletter - October 2015
Informal Settlement Skills
Skills2Work is currently assisting iKhaya Le Themba to create skills development opportunities for their Parent Resource Centre in Hout Bay. The scope of the project partnership includes job readiness and training and the expansion of the existing employment opportunities at the Centre.
iKhaya Le Themba operates in the Imizamo Yethu informal settlement in Hout Bay and started out as a childrens' day care facility. The work expanded to include a Parent Resource Centre which tackles the unemployment issues and skills shortage problem faced by the community.
Current iKhaya employment creation projects which are already underway include a deli and tourist destination, township tours and a successful bakery.
Skills2Work achieves 18A Status
Last year Skills2Work achieved 18a tax exemption status. We are looking forward to see opportunities open up as we are able to fundraise for larger projects. As we expand our work and take on new responsibilities we are also excited to see a new member of the team. Melvyn Office has taken on the treasurer and bookkeeping role, ensuring that we are implementing the current 'best-practice' systems.
