We were about to stop searching for projects in Aliwal North when we came across this really exciting initiative; we managed to speak to Themba who told us all about a training programme that he had taken part in. The program – an initiative of the Maletswai Municipality and the Department of Social Development – is aimed at the rehabilitation of offenders in order to give them a second chance through practical training that will give them skills to earn a living and the confidence to not revert to their criminal past. Themba now not only employs others in his welding business but also trains any youth who are interested in learning so that he can motivate them to seek more constructive alternatives to criminal paths.
Other projects in Aliwal North include the Leather Project and the Brick Laying Project.
