Bergzicht Training

Cause Profile

Bergzicht Training provides skills training to the impoverished, unskilled and unemployed and then places them into gainful employment in order to improve their lives and that of their families.

We reached our 20th anniversary, our mission is as important to us as it was 20 years ago. Over the years we have trained 10 000 people and placed at least 91% of graduates into employment. They are now able to provide for their families, and ensure that their children have a better start in life. Bergzicht provides them access to their very first job to so many who have not been able to finish school and who have no other options available to them. If not for this intervention they will remain destitute and unable to provide in the needs of thier families.

"The key to ending extreme poverty is to enable the poorest of the poor to get their foot on the ladder of development. The ladder of development hovers overhead, and the poorest of the poor are stuck beneath it. They lack the minimum amount of capital necessary to get a foothold, and therefore need a boost up to the first rung. " - Jeffrey D. Sachs

The need for employment is still very real in our country, and by addressing the issues that deny the most vulnerable access to employment, is what makes Bergzicht Training an answer to many a desperate call for help.
