One programme assisting another programme
Our accredited Tiling and Painting skills training course at the Emdeni Skills Centre in Soweto has been running for 3 years and is doing well. The course runs for 3 months and in order to complete it, the students need to do their practical training. A few months ago, the tiling and painting students did their practical work at the home of Sipho, one of our beneficiaries who is part of our programme for orphaned and vulnerable children in Soweto.
They tiled the bedroom and bathroom of their home. Sipho’s mom, who is very ill, said: “The students’ work was excellent. More importantly, their work was a blessing. When I pass on one day, I know I will be leaving a home for my children worth more than before.” Going forward, it was decided that the Tiling and Painting practicals will be used to assist beneficiaries on our programmes within the Emdeni and Zola area. What a wonderful way to give back to the community!
