Youth Skills Development Center (K3)

The Youth Skills Development Centre (K3) grew out of the need for continuity of care and support for our young people as they were discharged from the OVC program, and then other potential beneficiaries in the community. K3 provides vocational training, and a platform for youths to discover and develop their talents, having completed or failed matric or other further studies. It works to build self-esteem and help people to have a vision for their future.  It serves about 50 youths at present.

K3 Vision

To help build an empowered and sustainable community by increasing skills capacity and resource mobilization.

K3 Mission

The centre was established to train youth in relevant practical skills that will provide employment opportunities and allow them to open small businesses.

Some of the programs are:

Students study for six months for their ICDL (International Computer Driver’s License), comprising 7 modules: Basic Concepts of IT; Using a Computer and Managing files; Word processing; Spreadsheet; Database; Presentation.
