Where Rainbows Meet Training and Development Foundation continues to uplift the community by providing its people with skills to help them find jobs.

The foundation, based in Capricorn, sees to address the needs of the community which faces many socio-economic challenges. The computer and information technology training forms part of their Skills for Life Programme which takes place at their computer facility in the area, in the mornings and afternoons, four days in a week.

“A fresh batch of students arrived on Monday 8 April to be part of the afternoon computer class – the third intake for the year. A new adventure and journey has started for these students, life skills being an instrumental part of the package with various modules being presented which include, communication, time management, conflict resolution, interview training and many more,” explains Kyle Luke Cupido, project manager at the foundation.

The new skill set learned by the students is a complete solution which will serve to see them through the entire recruitment process from start to finish and equip them with the skills to perform the job.

“This will empower them with the relevant skills that will make them more employable and knowledgeable about information technology.

“As we all know this has now become an essential attribute in the business environment with many of the students also partaking in the business workshop as well.”

The foundation continues to upskill residents through a number of similar programmes including their youth development programme; business and English training; sewing and beading training; and aims to provide for those in need through their feeding programmes.

Cupido says that anyone looking to empower and upskill themselves through the training programme, should visit the organisation and register.

Training is free for unemployed people.V Contact Where Rainbows Meet Training and Development Foundation on 021 205 3496..
