About our Construction Skills School
Our Technical Skills site is based at the entrance of Vrygrond at the New World Foundation, an enormous warehouse enabling us to run a course with extensive training in plumbing, carpentry, bricklaying, electrical work, painting, tiling, and welding.
Our Master Builder provides students with hands-on training in a variety of practical handyman skills. Students gain on-the-job experience through job shadowing opportunities so they can quickly enter the informal economy.
Our students also complete a mechanical and spray-painting workshop in partnership with a local Crestmax Car Mechanics, who have also offered four of our students the opportunity of a 6-month internship upon graduation. All students receive official First Aid training which is developed specifically for the students to empower them to make an impact on improving survival in their homes, workplaces and communities.
Construction students graduated to date.
