Unemployed Youth and small business owner’s digital literacy workshop


City of Tshwane calls for unemployed Youth and small business owners to discuss digital literacy challenges. The workshops will be divided into 2 sessions with the first one on the 06 February 2020 and the second one 18 February 2020.

The first session will focus on groups that will determine the challenges with respect to digital literacy that the youth, students, the unemployed and small business owners are experiencing in the community.

After determining the most pressing issues, they will then have a hands-on workshop on the 18 February 2020 to build digital tools to mitigate these issues.

Mr Tiisetso Mphuthi, the organizer, said “We noticed that the reason people cannot access certain opportunities is because of lack of digital skills. So we want to bridge that gap.

“We also want to equip the marginalized with the necessary skills to make a difference in their lives”.

He said some of the mini-projects built at the second session may be developed further with the help of the South African government.

The first session will be attended by Geekulcha (https://geekulcha.com), officials from the  British High Commission and the City of Tshwane.

The session on the 6th February 2020 will be held at Temba Baptist Church (next to Fivers) – from 8:30 AM to 14:00 PM. The second session on 18 February 2020 will be at Mandela Community Hall from 8:30 AM to 16:00 PM.
