Training programme helps unemployed youths

Between March and May 2018, Gibela ran a series of workshops as part of an entrepreneurship training programme and a work readiness training programme.

The entrepreneurship training programme was all about helping people who want to start, operate, manage and grow a new small to medium business venture. The work readiness programme, on the other hand, helped to develop participants’ workplace-related attitudes, values, knowledge and skills so that they can find work, earn money and become independent. Applicants only needed a matric in order to apply.
