Kyle and his new career
Within the three years of Kyles career here at Hilltop he educated many young Xhosa villagers and some from Townships transforming them after many months of lecture and practical training into IT technicians, some who now work for Hilltop, other NGO's or who have become entrepreneurs, being independent to earn a living on their own using their IT skills. Kyle will always be remembered as someone with an infinite amount of patience, always kind and generous, an enthusiastic teacher.

Honey was a marathon runner and between 2004 and 2012 had learned how to be a soccer and boxing coach for boys, as a mentor and role model, Honey grew over the years and maintained his career in the security industry. The level of high risk with his work forced him after some soul searching to return to his home village and perused coaching, full-time for three years. Longing for something more, Honey came up to Hilltop for a visit and was encouraged to return to re-educate himself in IT and make this his future career path, leaving coaching for the weekends. A lot has changed and advanced in IT since 2004, now at age 35, Honey is perusing a full-time learnership at Hilltop acquiring the skills that will one day allow him to proudly be an Computer Technician. Congratulations Honey, we are very pleased to have you back!
