BRRRRRRR Its been a cold Winter so far

The snow has fallen on our Drakensburg mountains and Embocraft Training Centre Trust is only a short hour or so away from them.. being high up on top of Bothas Hill we are directly in line with the chilly winds that blow off the mountains.  As a result we have been working extra hard to keep warm and the results are phenomenal

Income Generation project has been producing amazing items of clothing for our clients

Success is always food for warmth and the July 2016 welding group run by Eric Britz our new welding trainer has done this for Embocraft Training Centre Trust

– besides the heat from the welders and grinders – the upgrade to the welding area has proven a great winter warmer.

Young and old worked together in perfect harmony and on receipt of their certificates much jubilation was expressed.  Such an achievment for the men who had previously not had a chance at obtaining a skill to enable them to go out into the workplace and seek employment


Sewing at Embocraft is a sure Winter warmer..

We were thrilled to have two men join our latest sewing group and cant wait to see how they progress over the next 15 day course.   SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
