The Ginigoada Bisnis Development Foundation has graduated 372 residents from Taurama Barracks with certificates in life skills training.
Training Manager, Robert Evah, says this program is aimed to empower residents to venture into the SME sector.
After two weeks of training conducted by the Ginigoada Bisnis Development Foundation officials, participants graduated with certificates today.
This program is part of Ginigoada’s literacy program called Fresh Start, which mainly targets adults.
They have received training in Business Management, Cultural Diversity, Health Hygiene and Diet, Conflict Resolution, Community Skills, Cash Flow, and Budgeting.
The training is sponsored by Sister of Mercy, an organisation of the Catholic Church based out of Sydney.
The skills training will empower the youth, women and men to start their own business to benefit them financially.
Bernadette Moripi, speaking on behalf of mothers in her community, said their partners’ fortnightly income cannot sustain them for two weeks.
She was also inspired to further her skills training in basic skills for Business, Customer Care and Front Desk Skills.
Apart from Taurama, participants from other areas in NCD also attended the training.
