Many thanks to Nazli Laatoe, executive from the City of Cape Town for initiating the current group of 10 learners from Nomzamo township with training support via BPeSA Association, our call centre strategic partner. Follow their progress here.
Many thanks to Vuyelwa Jacobs, Programme Director at Habitat 4 Humanity, for including Ubuntu Touch in their upliftment agenda in Pelican Park. We look forwards to a deep partnership with them going forwards in 2015.
The primary beneficiaries of this project are unemployed women from disadvantaged areas in and around Cape Town, who will be targeted for this training. Currently, there are 10 women in the project who are being sponsored.
80% of these women were recruited through the Mamalani Projects. Mamelani Projects, registered in 2003, has grown into a respected community development organisation based in Salt River, Cape Town. Mamelani facilitates programs that assist people in taking action to improve their lives. Mamelani believes in developing communities by developing people, and works from the inside out, rather than from the outside in. In this way, their programs are always in line with the real felt needs of the communities they work with. Ubuntu Touch is proud to be working alongside Mamalani Projects.
Many thanks to Carly Tanur, who assisted in the process of recruiting the students for the project!
