Two former students of the programme, Sinazo Khube and Asemahle Khube, have successfully registered at St Francis College for classes that will prepare them to rewrite their matric exams.
Sinayo Magingxa, a student who had joined F4LF4W through the CESVI group and is in possession of a diploma in finance, has found employment as a Finance Assistant Intern, and started work in March 2022. Her previous contract with a finance company had come to an end, and although she went to a lot of interviews she had not ,managed to get a job. Upon joining F4LF4W she shared her story and was assisted with interview skills, practising with our coordinator. She was soon called for an interview and a week later got a positive response!
In August, two of our students attended an information briefing held at Vukuzenzele skills centre, and filled in application forms for start-up capital. Yolanda Mchila wants to start her own food business and Luthando Nkwandla aims to open a coffee shop and is looking for funds to buy a coffee machine and other equipment. He has just completed a 3-week barista course in Langa.
Vukuzenzele, which is based in Khayelitsha, is looking to partner with Etafeni to run entrepreneurial training for youth in Nyanga and surrounding areas; this could link up with the Fit for Life, Fit for Work training.
ECD uniforms made by the group A graduation ceremony was held on 28 July for students who underwent training.
