Last week six children that are part of the Aftercare Programme and currently doing Grade 10,11 or 12 got the opportunity to go to Eskom in New Germany.
They were taking part in their initiative to “bring a child to work”. Eskom, New Germany Office‘s objectives for the day were to celebrate youth month with 20 young people from different schools around Durban.
Eskom addressed the children about substance abuse and gave them a career guidance by informing them about the different opportunities they have while working for Eskom. They did that by showing the group around the different departments and explaining to them i.E. how electricity is being formed.
Mr. Bala the Director Manager of KZN was encouraging the children by sharing his testimony of how he grew up in a disadvantaged community but because of the goals he set for himself, he was able to get this far.
