Project Report | Mar 15, 2023
Sijonge Kuwe Job Creation and Poverty Alleviation

By Sikhangele Qwase | Programme Manager

Sijonge Kuwe Youth Development Project was very active in this period from 16 November 2022 to date 15 March 2023.We closed for december holidays on 20 December 2022 and we opened our office on 9 January 2023.All our training  and business development programmes were very active with clients coming to our centre from differents parts of Khayelitsha and surrounding communities.

Despite the challenges like load shedding 15 people(7 youth,6 women and 2 people with disabilities were trained in art/cultural skills training and all these people attended business skills training which is the intergral part of our programmes.

33 community entrepreneurs from Khayelitsha visited our office for business advices and business information on how to run a business.4 different workshops were conducted on topics like Budgeting,How to tender for government and private esctor,Costing and Pricing as well as Record Keeping for the business.

The art/cultural skills training and business skills training are having an impact on our people as more people are opening up their own businesses.Sijonge Kuwe Business Counsellor is visiting these ex-trainees in their businesses giving them advice on how to run their businesses..

Thanks to our donors for supporting our programmes especially Jill Holmes of Uk for the kind donation during this period.I would also thank the staff of GlobalGiving for their support during this period.

May God Bless You All
