Challenge

South Africa's Unemployment Rate is projected at 34.111% in Dec 2021. Of particular concern is the high rate of youth unemployment which lead to social problems. Wellington also has its share of these problems. Through our training interventions (600 students/annum ) we address the social problems and empower individuals with the necessary skills to compete within the job market and generate their own income - directly impact the employment rate in our country, since 1998.

Solution

Wamakers' vision is to provide training to the disadvantaged and marginalized community of Wellington. Our main objective is to train unemployed people to become skilled workers or entrepreneurs in the career fields of Frail Care, Child Care, Home Management, Cooking and Hairdressing Assistants. Not only do our students receive training in theory and practical experience, but also obtain valuable life skills and knowledge. Subsidizing of course fees makes it available to any potential student

Long-Term Impact

We train 600 students per annum, mainly women, empowering them with the necessary skills to compete within the job market and generate their own income. This has a directly impact families in our community. With our holistic approach we aim to educate individuals to enable them to take ownership of their own lives and lead healthy and happy lives. We see our intervention as holistic, responding to needs and driven by community leadership, collaborating with a number of local institutions.
