They are grateful for the support and contribution from the Municipality, and they vow to do their best to succeed in their individual studies in order to come back to impart their knowledge and skills within the community of Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality.

“As the Municipality, we recognize the challenge that our communities face when the demand for skills can’t be met, and unemployment persists because individuals don’t have the skills required by employers. We have made a commitment to contribute towards closing this gap and help build a growing economy through the required skills within our Municipality. We have the mandate to ensure that this Municipality continues to shine the light of hope and transforms the lives of our community members,” said the Mayor.
