Tigers continues to donate to Ubuntu Pathways and each month our funds go towards costs relating to computer and vocational training.
Ubuntu have incorporated computer literacy training across all their programs including their after-school initiative where they have a computer lab providing a space for students to work on homework and practice their IT skills or for caregivers to apply for jobs.
Their Jobs Skills Training (JST) program, offer workshops that cover professionalism, employability, job placement, and financial literacy. These include sessions ranging from communication skills to CV building to computer literacy. JST students also participate in their vocational workshops, which includes learning barista work, culinary arts, and sewing trades.
On the computer side they also provide a Robotics program and Coding workshops. Our donation also goes towards any technological supplies for classrooms.
Tigers PE also sponsor an Internship & Training program for students and are currently discussing plans for next year with the organization.
There is excitement amongst everyone as the long-term dream of Ubuntu to open a new school will soon be realized in January. In a bid to raise further funds for this, Tigers staff along with dignitaries and well-wishers recently attended the spectacular annual Ubuntu Pathways Gala dinner in Johannesburg, South Africa (pictured).
