Skills for life has put together a database of indigent families from across the city of Ekurhuleni. Through this programme we would also like to touch lives of those community members that are not able to do things for themselves because of their socio-economic status. The aim is to restore dignity to those that have been deprived this by living in abject poverty. We aim to realize this through the following:
Identification of houses or dwellings that need to be renovated and families are not able to afford especially older people;
Once the houses have been selected, the learners that have gone through training at Ekurhuleni Artisan and Skills Training Centre will be deployed to renovate those houses as part of their practical training (these individuals will spend at least three weeks in their own communities as part of their training).
At the end, you and your organization will receive the heartwarming satisfaction that you have not only provided a youth with an employable skill for life but also improved the living conditions of a granny.
