Our October blog envisaged supporting one of our trainees through further training, but thanks to AMI (African Musical Instruments) two will be starting work there in January. They will be learning on the job how to make marimbas and other musical instruments. Khanya will continue to support them financially during this period. They will be subject to the same regulations as regular employees and will receive the same holidays in terms of sick pay and holidays.
Here you can see where Zim and Sibu will be working and below a foretaste of what they will be making.
