Who we are …
This workshop trains about 10 trainees. In a formal skills training programme, they are taught to make leather goods and to learn basic business skills. After eight months, our trainees are evaluated by the Walter Sisulu University of Technology and receive accredited certificates. Having a certificated qualification increases their chances of employment in the leatherwork field.
By promoting marketing in local venues, the production of more and more creative products will be present. This will promote opportunities to network and give further exposure for our trainees in the job market.
