Partnership with the City of Cape Town
DLK Group partnered with the City of Cape Town to provide Computer Literacy Training and Development for more than1000 previously disadvantaged individuals. These workshops assisted the graduates by empowering them with new skills that they have applied to finding employment.
As part of DLK Group’s social responsibility, we have launched a project in collaboration with the City of Cape Town Economic & Social Development Directorate. This project has been the 6th of its kind over the past 4 years and entails training and developing previously disadvantaged individuals in Computer Literacy skills. Over this period we have trained close to on 1000 previously disadvantaged individuals from Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Langa, Mannenberg, Delft, Mfuleni, i.e. from impoverished townships across the Western Cape. The most recent phase saw 95 learners being equipped and empowered. Their new found skill has assisted them in finding suitable employment. Having a strong relationship with the community and its leaders, SHAWCO has come on board and offered their training facilities for DLK Group to utilize for community training. In return, DLK assists with technical support and general maintenance of the Hardware & Software equipment.
We hope to make this an ongoing project, where we endeavor to develop even more previously disadvantaged individuals in the field of ICT. With DLK’s motto, “A Culture of Excellence”, we strive to constantly find innovative ways and means to constantly deliver excellent service offerings, irrespective of the social wellbeing or geographical background of people.
The Students’ Health and Welfare Centres Organisation (SHAWCO) in collaboration with DELL & DLK Group officially launched the ICT community laboratories in Mannenberg and Khayelitsha.
Dell invested approximately R600 000 into the two laboratories, providing state-of-the-art hardware such as new computers, servers, and projectors with smart boards. DLK Group provided the I.T and project management skills by installing 60 computers, 2 projectors, 2 whiteboards and ensuring that the environments are stable and user-friendly for both the community and staff.
