The Youth Skills Development Center 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 candidates in the community. Many continue to be dependent on the organization for survival.
Providing young people with vocational skills builds self-esteem and helps them have hope for their futures, and may also generate income for the Project.
Our K3 Vision
To contribute to a sustainable community through practical skills training.
Our K3 Mission
To provide training programs, and create job opportunities for our youth to benefit them, and the community as a whole.
Current programs are:
- Computer Training
- Marimba lessons
Marimbas and drums have been donated by Casterbridge Music Development Agency, with up to 200 children learning to play them.
There is currently no funding for computer training. Some computers are being used for after-school additional learning.
After additional training, funded by the National Parks (Kruger), three of the sewing class are now producing ranger uniforms for a local private game park. Sewing, beading and carpentry products are available for sale at K3.
