Possibly (imo) one of the most important community upliftment projects we have embarked on as an organisation.
We held a skills development (Career Preparedness Workshop) day in Joe Slovo Park for 22 unemployed ladies. Day 1 of a 3 day workshop say the ladies all preparing their CVs and given training on searching for career opportunities, getting ready for intervews etc.
Day 2 planned for next week will see the ladies go to an internet cafe (the same one we used for our Youth Leadership Program) to help them physically search and apply for work.
This is a long term project and program that we will walk with these ladies and help them get employed – either part time or full time!
Loads of potential in each and every lady!
16 Days of Activism…it should be 365 freaking days of activism…
