The vision of Learn to Earn is to eradicate poverty and other legacies of injustice in South Africa and Africa.  Learn to Earn provides market-relevant skills training across  3 training venues in the Western Cape with their mission being to develop people, especially unemployed people economically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Through programmes that give a ‘hand up not a hand out’ Learn to Earn restores hope, dignity and self-respect of unemployed people, empowering them to provide from themselves and their families.

The students receive core skills training with supplementary life skills, basic computer skills, office administration, sewing and hospitality & barista programmes.  In addition to up skilling their learners, they also facilitate access to further education and economic opportunities.

The funding provided by the AVI Community Trust for the period was allocated in full to sponsoring 39 unemployed individuals for a Bake for Profit course in Khayelitsha (17 students), Barista training in Claremont (12 students) and a Home Management course at the Hermanus campus (10 students).
