Dimbaza Business Centre

The Dimbaza Business Centre is located in the township of Dimbaza, a dumping ground by the former apartheid government and has since become a symbol of neglect and decay with more than 60 factories standing empty. The DBC is run as a social and business entreprise providing Dimbaza residents with much needed services and IT literacy training.

Services include internet and email, printing and copying, typing and faxing.

There are four IT literacy classes for the Dimbaza community a day with currently 52 students. It is a six months course that provides the students with knowledge of MS Word, MS Excel, MS Powerpoint, business administration, the internet and email.
