The new season arrived and with it a good deal of good news from the Jobshop Project!
Zakhele Samuel Khumalo Setlwatlwa and Godfrey Ngaka successfully completed their 12 month electrical learnership programme on 31 August 2018.
The Jobshop’s specialist training and employment intervention programme allowed these learners the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to successfully find work in the Manufacturing and Mining Industries, Mpumalanga.
The Jobshop’s specialised training and employment intervention programme successfully assisted the learners with employment. Zakhele began employment at Neven Matthews since January 2018, and Setlwatlwa was offered employment at Ellerts Electrical recently.
We are proud of their achievements, and we wish them a bright and successful future.

Vukani-Ubuntu thanks Reuben Vorster!
Vukani-Ubuntu Community Development Projects would like to thank Witcon Electronics for their generous donation of R4 000. We are grateful for their valuable contribution and commitment to supporting the Project.
The donation will be exclusively used for the Socio Economic Development of our Vukani’s Job-Shop Artisanal Up-skilling Training and Job-Placement facility in eMalahleni / Witbank - Mpumalanga. All the proceeds will go towards the training and developing skills of the students at the Jobshop.
Mr. Reuben Vorster, the owner of the Witcon Electronics said: “It is a privilege to support this remarkable project which has such a positive impact on the people coming from rural areas, by up-skilling them and finding them jobs”.
Up-close with a Jobshop learner.
We asked our students at the Jobshop what they think about the Project.
We spoke with THOKOANE JENLY MANASOE.
Jenly (27) who comes from the Limpopo region is in the HVAC learnership (Heating, Ventilation & Air- Conditioning) at the Jobshop. Some time ago she met a few of our students, asked them about the Project and decided to send in her CV.
She’s really happy to have started the learnership: “Before I joined the Project I didn’t know anything about air-conditioning or HVAC, but now I even know how to fix a fridge, and I can resolve other domestic machines problems by myself. Jobshop helps all of us to get employment, I’m sure I’ll find a job at the end of the training.’’
This is the motivation that our students embrace to improve their chances in life.
