Empowering communities through social entrepreneurship.
Themba Training serves a number of communities in the Helderberg and Grabouw areas. We aim to equip individuals in the local community with the necessary skills to generate an income by offering offer basic skills training. Beneficiaries are equipped with practical skills that include basic computer skills, business and relevant life skills and handcraft skills. Equipped individuals may then use these skills to become small business owners or enter the formal or informal job market, thereby being empowered to support their families.
Connecting people to their potential through teaching and training.
Themba Connect is a community development centre located in the small town of Adelaide in the Eastern Cape. The purpose of this centre is to equip and develop community members while improving lives. In Adelaide, communities are highly focused on their own individual needs not being met – often waiting for governments or outsiders to solve them, instead of attempting to do so themselves. Themba Connect seeks to shift this paradigm and help transform the community’s focus to working on their skills and assets, through workshops and training courses.
