About 100 people from Blikkiesdorp will go through training in house building and brick laying for the next 12 months.

Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) and the City of Cape Town launched a R11 million skills development programme for residents of Blikkiesdorp.

General Manager at Acsa, Deon Cloete says 100 individuals, who went through a vigorous selection process, will start training in house building and brick laying for 12 months.

Cloete says they have partnered with the False Bay Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College to provide the people with relevant training.

We have over 2 000 families that needs formal housing... if people build their own homes there is a strong sentiment around that emotionally.

Deon Cloete, General Manager at Acsa

This is a project we are confident about, we are doing this because we have all the right people and we are very excited about this project.

Deon Cloete, General Manager at Acsa

Blikkiesdorp was set up years ago as a temporary relocation facility in Delft. Over the years, the facility has become an area synonymous with many social problems.
