We love to share the feedback of the impact that StreetSmart funding is having on the lives of young people who need support to enable them living a viable live in society.
StreetSmart Cape Town provided School of Hope with a disbursement towards the computer skills training instructor salary.
School of Hope recently partnered with On The Ball College, to empower more women to enter the IT business. The college has approached us to nominate a female learner to participate in the Woman in IT initiative. They provide programming and coding classes to young female adults from previously disadvantaged backgrounds to prepare them for a career in IT.
Sive Mxhonywa, a young female learner currently completing her Grade 10 at the School of Hope, has been nominated for this opportunity. She is a learner who is keen to partake in the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) currently experienced in South Africa. Sive said, “I would like to run my own Online firm one day, where I will be able to provide online health consultancy services to the economically and financially challenged clients, who are geographically isolated in the rural areas of South Africa. I want to focus on using ICT to deliver top notch services to these at-risk clients due to their background and geographical location. They are also South Africans like us”. A few months before writing this report she was placed back at home. This is one of our success stories because we always try to unify the children with family and back to normal life.
