Durban South Opportunity Centre about to kick off

2016-02-03 06:00

A joint initiative between Durban South Business Forum (DSBF), Amanzimtoti Community Upliftment Project (AMCUP) and Vincit Omnia Veritas Trust will kick off within the next few days.

This project is conducted with the full support of local government, SAPS, and various other parties.
We also thank the many individual members of our community and local businesses who have financially contributed to the cost of making this possible.

Through this project, known as Durban South Opportunity Centre, many of the unemployed job seekers standing along Kingsway in Warner Beach are to be relocated to the facilities prepared for this purpose, at AMCUP.

All legal job seekers will be profiled and categorised in terms of skill and past training and experience. In that way, they will have the best chance of finding a job to best suit their specific aptitude and/or interest.

Anybody wishing to employ someone, be it only for the day, on a short term contract or for possibly permanent employment, will be encouraged to use this channel. These people will also, as far as possible, be utilised in many community projects that will come up from time to time. In addition, those who did not find a job for the day will be given a plate of food, so they would at least not have to go home hungry and be forced to less desirable methods to find something to eat.

The public are strongly encouraged to not give money to vagrants begging on street corners, but rather channel their good intentions to really help in upliftment through this project.
Anybody wishing to make a financial or other contribution should contact Lee Lewis 082 890 4982.

It will make a significant impact in uplifting our business and social community as well as the environment in particular.
