Islamic Relief South Africa facilitated training in basic IT skills for 10 refugees and asylum-seekers.
The Assistance, Protection, Education and Self-Reliance for Refugees and Asylum Seekers project provides support to 60 adult and 30 child refugees and asylum seekers in South Africa.
One of the key components of the project is to ensure improved livelihoods among POC (Persons of Colour). This is achieved through a series of activities including providing vocational training such as basic IT training.
The certificate awarding and graduation ceremony for the 10 refugees and asylum seekers took place at the Cyber minds institute in Parow on the 8th February 2022. IT training significantly impacts refugees lives through facilitating access to rights, information about health, education, employment and social inclusion.This ultimately helps refugees and asylum seekers to be self-sufficient.The training equipped the participants with basic IT skills that facilitate job market integration, promotes social cohesion and increased opportunities.
Considering the high levels of unemployment in our country. This project aims to educate individuals to live sustainable lives through the training provided to them and through this can they inspire, encourage and empower others in their communities.
Islamic Relief South Africa is proud of these 10 individuals who undertook this journey of empowering themselves and received their certification of completion.Together we can create an optimistic future and opportunities to help individuals succeed.
