ECP’s INDIBANO workshops

INDIBANO is the Xhosa word for ‘meeting’.  Specifically designed to assist those  who have significant barriers to overcome, these workshops have been adapted to suit the young people from the townships in helping them to:

  • Know themselves in more depth, so that they can understand what career or job would really suit their personality, aptitudes and abilities
  • Learn more about the world in which they seek to enter – commonly called the ‘Business Culture’, so they can improve their chances of achieving their aim
  • Devise a career path to reach that aim:

To be all they can be!
