The majority of teenagers in Limpopo don't know how to operate a computer. We aim to change this. During Career Guidance Weeks five teenage students come to DAKTARI for a week to learn how to use a PC. We teach them the core values; a professional CV, how to apply online for jobs, we practice mock interviews, how to dress and how to behave. We've seen great success with this project but we now need more computers to give the students a more personal experience for their week here.
Nowadays, most of the job offers are online and almost every job requires computer skills. DAKTARI needs to stay modern and help an emerging community that don't have computers to excel at securing employment through technology. It's important for the students to learn how to use a computer, as this will gain them access to the majority of job offers in South Africa.
Having access to a computer is a major stepping stone to achieving employment.
Having the local communities teach others vital computer skills in the future. Having people gain employment via our project.
