Chief Albert Luthuli Skills Centre (CALSC)
A state-of-the-art training centre has been launched in KwaDukuza to empower unemployed young people with technical skills needed in the building industry.
Courses such as welding, bricklaying, electrical work and plumbing will be offered to students from Grade 10 upwards. The centre also aims to provide job linkages for students once their studies are complete.
The 700-square-metre facility includes three lecture rooms, a large workshop, an administration block and reception area, as well as ablution facilities. The project is being driven by partnerships with local government, tertiary institutions and educational bodies, as well as national and provincial corporates.
Unemployment levels in KwaDukuza are unacceptably high, owing to the slow rate of development. It is hoped that the centre will unlock jobs for many underprivileged youths in the years to come.
“It is critical that the poor get opportunities to acquire skills,” stated KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu, “and this project provides just this.”
The project is managed by the Sibaya Community Trust, with the assistance of Certified Workforce Trainers, a consulting firm committed to developing unique solutions to educational challenges.
KZN Science Centre
The KZN Science Centre’s vision is to be a leading educational centre, focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Through interactive exhibitions and curriculum-based resources, they are fostering a love of science in learners who may have limited or no exposure to these fields. In so doing, the Centre not only stimulates the development of enquiring minds, but also contributes to a brighter future for our country.
Through funding from the Sibaya Community Trust, the KZN Science Centre offers an educational outreach programme, engaging learners in the theory and practice of science from a young age.
The project delivers science engagement and learning to disadvantaged schools and communities across the province, assisting learners in Grades 10, 11 and 12 in the practical application of science.
The Mobile Science Lab in a bus funded by the Trust is reaching over 1 000 learners in Ndwedwe this year. It is giving learners hands-on exposure to the experiments covered in their matric exams, as well as supporting teachers with the CAPS curriculum in Physical and Life Sciences.
The Domino Foundation
The Domino Foundation’s mission is to see individuals and communities living with dignity, justice, hope and purpose.
The team works to see communities transformed through acts
A vast array of community projects are undertaken by the Foundation, including babies’ homes, a life skills programme and much more. Another element of the Foundation’s work is being committed to feeding hungry people in their darkest hour of need.
The Sibaya Community Trust’s Brightstart ECD programme is committed to improving the quality of education that children receive by addressing each aspect of the learning environment.
The Trust provides for:
- Educational training and business training for crèche owners and teachers
- Transport costs
- Infrastructural upgrades and renovations
- Providing for field workers and programme management to mentor staff at the crèches in the community
Alongside the core goal of providing funds for the learning centres, additional support provides nutritional support as well as learning material and resources for each centre. The first 1 000 days of a child’s life are a critical time for moulding a young mind. Well-resourced and trained ECD practitioners will create a new generation of young South Africans who have a solid foundation for learning.
