LtE's Story – Partnership
In Khayelitsha, one worker feeds seven unemployed people. FACT
By helping those who want to help themselves, we're making a real difference in the communities.
Learn to Earn was established in 1989 to address unemployment and the obvious need for skills training in Khayelitsha. Since then LtE has trained over 8,500 unemployed adults in sewing, woodwork, baking, graphic design, office administration, computer literacy, business skills, sales representing, home management, employment readiness, life skills and so on.
A major difference that sets LtE apart from similar initiatives is that its focus is on developing people, resulting in many of LtE’s trainees being placed in sustainable employment. The LtE Business Resource Centre (BRC) links the training to real time business networks in order to optimize placements. This partnership opportunity seeks to enhance and increase our skills training programme to include income generation skills training for all beneficiaries.
