July 2016 has proven to be yet another successful month at Embocraft Training Centre.

We are thrilled to welcome Eric Britz as our new welding trainer ..?Eric is confined to a wheelchair following a leg amptuation as a result of diabetes –


We have adjusted our welding training room to suit his needs and the first week has proven to be a great success.  ?



Our Libby Weir sewing course for the community of Kwa Ximba/Denge which is inland from Inchanga has once again been a great delight with young and old all graduating with flying colours.  Our sewing trainers Thandi and Goodness have once again enabled these 10 ladies to learn a new skill and provide them with the tools for success.  ?

Each graduate was given a hand sewing machine to take home and continue sewing in the hopes that they can become self sufficient and provide for their families.?
