The course manual often gets put on the shelf and rarely gets opened again. In order to really help with the transition and implementation of the course learnings, Alusani Skills & Training Network offers 12 months of post-course support.

Giving Back

Being a 100% woman-owned company with a staff compliment predominately of hard working mothers, we decided that a not for profit organisation which focused on the needs of children would be the most appropriate.

We decided that in order for our investment to make a meaningful difference in the lives of underprivileged children we needed to choose an organisation that had a clearly defined goal but that also had achieved some measurable results.

Using this set of criteria it was then easy to make the final decision and this is how we decided on The Keiskamma Trust which is a truly unique South African not-for-profit organisation.

Dedicated to the holistic care of the communities that live in the area alongside the Keiskamma River, they combine health, art, music and educational initiatives in order to fight against poverty and HIV/AIDS. We are proud to have been able to assist them to make a difference (even a small one) in the lives of the most vulnerable.
