A TOTAL of 10 young people are going for basic computer literacy training after a partnership was signed between Sivile Housing Association Skills and Training Centre and NGO, Life After Bars.

In October last year, Life After Bars co-ordinators approached Sivile with the aim of forming a partnership to develop young people in Kokstad. The NGO gives hope and encourages former prisoners to live a crime-free life after serving their sentence.

Megan Van Der Lingen, Sivile programme co-ordinator said partnering with Life After Bars will yield good results.

“Our partnership shows we must take the opportunity to network and foster good relationships with stakeholders in Kokstad.”
