Green Skills & Dignity for Swati Young Men

Through the Social Entrepreneurship and Income Generating (SEIG) Project’s activities, Kwakha Indvodza continues to empower out-of-school young men with the knowledge and skills necessary to enhance employability and develop their income generating capacities. So far in 2023, KI has managed to conduct one skills development training-carpentry, engaging 9 emajaha. Topics included theory, woodwork equipment and tools usage (practicals), and actual production of products.

Three former apprentices (2 carpenters and 1 welder) were contracted to refurbish a playground for Ekwetsembeni Special School. Another 3 apprentices secured a tender to repair desks for Sokhonjiwe High School. They managed to repair 86 single desks (replacements only) and earned a reasonable salary in exchange for their service. Such projects do not only increase the knowledge of the apprentices, but they also minimize waste in schools, are good for the environment, while creating better learning atmosphere for students.  

With supervision and support from the SEIG Coordinator and other KI Staff, emajaha capacitated with carpentry and welding skills are encouraged to use our available chapter offices (currently Kwaluseni Chapter) to practice their skill on daily basis. They manage to produce a set of products for sale. With your continued support, we hope to provide other skills trainings which include agriculture, art, handcraft and welding later this year. Participants who have passion for business are also provided with business mentoring throughout the first steps in their ventures. 

As always, this project is supported by a number of different sources, including the kind genrousity of Global Givers - thank you!
