We have, since 2011, skilled 100 young men through the various service providers and in particular St Anthony’s Skills Centre. Our Skills Programme was an addition to our education programme and boys who had been reunified were eligible to receive training.
During 2017 it was noted that more and more older boys were falling back into the streets and so the Sakhimpilo Course was developed and has successfully assisted 16 young men to change their lives from drug and street dependency to be skilled in Panel Beating, Spraying, Bakery Chef, Welding and Building. St Anthony’s Skill Centre, Embocraft, Versatile Skills Centre, Hibiscus Training Centre and Corobrik were the helpful service providers we utilised last year.
