Who we are
Skills for life is a fully registered NGO/NPO and was formed by dynamic entrepreneur Marthie Jansen van Rensburg together with her colleagues, Nomakwezi and Cathlene in 2015. The three committed themselves to improve the lives of disadvantaged youth, women and disabled people with an employable skill. They envisage encouraging communities to participate in the economy of South Africa, with the aim of improving their living conditions. As part of practical training for qualified artisans, we intend to, amongst others, renovate houses for people from indigent families and in particular, senior citizens in the communities.Skills for Life will also be developing and coaching newly founded entrepreneurs in communities to promote self-sustainability and sustainable job creation.
Skill for life is equipped to fight poverty one skill at a time.
