Mandela Day in Kekana Gardens

Mandela Day in Kekana Gardens

ERP again celebrated this year’s Mandela Day in Kekana Gardens. This year, we converged at the Pfaranani Skills Training Centre, where we had different activities lined up. In collaboration with South African National Civic Organisation (SANCO) and MACO, a local youth drama group, over 200 elderly people and youth converged at the centre for the day. ERP donated 115 blankets to the elderly, who were also treated to a light meal and entertainment. Our beehive fencing group were also able to share their initiative and experiences in beekeeping with those present. The highlight of the day was when we handed out 115 blankets to the elderly, in addition to food hampers that were sponsored by Housing Investment Partners, who had two of their representatives present for the day. Many thanks go out to EPI-USE Africa and Housing Investment Partners, and all who were involved for the support and ensuring this day was a success.

Microsoft Learning being rolled out at Pfaranani Centre

This week, ERP kick started a Microsoft Learning Programme at Pfaranani Training Centre in Kekana Gardens. This is in partnership with the Gauteng Premier’s Office, and the learning programme is being implemented by Harambee Youth Accelerator. Over the next 4 weeks, we will be conducting such training 1 day a week, targeting the youth within the area. Today’s session targeted about 100 participants, and we aim to train around 500 youth by the end of the programme. ERP currently manages Pfaranani Centre, and we aim to implement more of similar programmes in the next coming months.
