Skills Development

Unlock your digital potential

“Education is the responsibility for all within society, and all must bear the burden to empower the next generation through education.”
Beyers Naudé


Computer skills development empowers young minds and creates digital futures

Where We've Come From

Since our inception in 2012, we have recognised the need for computer skills development and the lack of infrastructure available to learners.

To address this, we launched the Melisizwe Computer Lab project and have proudly and successfully completed a number of initiatives, installed multiple computer labs and impacted countless lives

Where We're Going & Why

Our approach to digital skills development and education has adjusted as technology has become available. We realised that a physical lab, while beneficial, is constrained by its physical location and size – technology now allows us to reach more people in a more meaningful way in whatever environment they choose.

We’ve managed to provide digital education to thousands of underprivileged learners across South Africa through the help of partners and funders.

As technology continues to rapidly evolve, we have realised the need to adapt accordingly. We understand in order to make a meaningful and lasting impact we need to be a sustainable social enterprise.

The approach is simple : organisations and individuals who can afford to pay will have access to top class education, while we actively seek partners and sponsors to fund those who are unable to afford it.

While our e-learning platform creates a virtual community, Melisizwe Makers is a physical hub that provides unrestricted space for youth to learn, research, explore, create and gain employment experience.

The hub is our point of convergence and head quarters which provides support and services to our satellite sites, thereby creating a greater impact.
