Community-based non-profit organisation, Ikamva Ubomi is calling on businesses in and around Salt River to help them establish a resource centre to help children who stay at the Cape Town Multi Service Centre do their homework comfortably.

The resource centre will consist of computer equipment which will ensure that over 35 children are able to conduct research successfully.

Chief executive officer of Ikamva Ubomi Eugene Walker said the resource centre will be a place where these children will enjoy learning. He said four of the senior boys that stay at the centre will work with the team that will be setting up the centre so that they can acquire necessary skills.

“They will be exposed to electrical, carpentry and networking infrastructure skills that will benefit them in the future,” Walker said.

He also said the organisation is interacting with their business contacts to lend a hand in making this project possible.

Director of the Cape Town Multi Service Centre said they were grateful for Ikamva Ubomi to have shown interest in making the lives of these children better.

“It is very helpful having an organisation that speaks for us because we rely on donations to run smoothly and it is very difficult having to speak to businesses without any proven track record.

One of the boys that will be part of this project, Tshepo* said he is excited to be part of the project and cannot wait for it to get started. “This is a very important project because so many children will benefit from it. I cannot wait to start and learn new skills,” he said.

Another boy, Thapelo* appealed to businesses to get involved in order to make their lives better.

“Investing in this project will secure our future and that of the country. It is very important to invest in young people who will help shape the country,” he concluded.

The project is expected to commence during the school holidays and the estimated cost is R200 000.

*Names of the children have been changed to protect their identities.

The Cape Town Multi Service Centre cares for vulnerable children.
