Skills training for 20 unskilled South African men

May 23, 2009

Making South Africa Work

Employment intermediation is a primary activity of Men at the Side of the Road.

Coupled with our training initiatives, we focus our energies on finding our members work. This has included creating an environment in which the general public can interact with our members and develop trust.

We are pleased to report a 60% increase in the number of work days achieved in 2008, and are confident of increasing that target during 2009.

All this success has been achieved on a less than 5% increase in the overall expenditure of MSR in the three years.

Thank you for your ongoing support and interest in Making South Africa Work.

You will find our 2009 newsletter attached for your convenience.
