Bergzicht Training is dedicated to the skills development of unemployed people in the community. Situated in the picturesque town of Stellenbosch, Western Province, it has been operating since 1992.
Our success is based on our commitment to assist in empowering those with little education and minimal skills. By teaching people skills and providing them with the tools needed to break cycles of poverty, Bergzicht is addressing one of the most pressing needs facing vulnerable communities.
Our focus ensures that our learners complete their courses with essential skills in one of the following subject areas: Home Management, Educare, Frail Care and Catercare. We pride ourselves in the fact that we have already trained more than 10 000 people from the disadvantaged rural areas around Stellenbosch, the Cape Flats and at our Associates throughout South Africa. 91% of learners have found permanent employment through our in-house placement bureau.
To me, Bergzicht is like a tree. You see that tree? The strong roots and the stem are Bergzicht. Then you have the branches. We are the twigs. The tree keeps on growing and growing, and the sky is our limit. – Penelope Steyn
Our award-winning approach has garnered recognition from various bodies. The success of our skills development model is further highlighted by the fact that we have been approached by various similar organisations to replicate this model through our Associates Programme.
As a non-profit organisation providing a service that is essential to the upliftment of the community, we rely very much on the generosity of benevolent individuals and corporates for donations and sponsorships.
