Opening of the platfontein community computer centre

In November 2015  the Platfontein SAN community experienced a historical opening of its very first computer centre after the successful training of a selected number of youth from their community who spent 6 months undertaking an intensive mulit-sector training programme in preparation for the running of several types of projects at Platfontein with this centre being the first one off the implementation plan and programme.

A business plan had been developed and signed by the community CPA ( community property association) and submitted to the IDC in Johannesburg by Hilltop and is currently awaiting funding approval.

The training of 13 Platfontiener adult youth and the renovation of the new computer centre in Platfontien was funded by the Swiss 2 hr fun Run committee facilitated by Susi Gubler.
