Rebuilding St Francis Bay using Local & the Proposal for Training Facilities

To all contractors in the building industry of St Francis Bay and Cape St Francis.

St Francis Connect (www.stfrancisconnect.co.z) is driving the campaign “Rebuild St Francis Bay using Local.”

For those of you who do not know about St Francis Connect, we are a website which gives St Francis Bay and Cape St Francis businesses a web presence on our site. St Francis Connect connects consumers and businesses by informing consumers of the local businesses, what they do, their products, specials and so on.

A lot of houses need to be re-built next year and the income derived from this is exactly what our area needs. However, should the demand for skilled labour also increase we do not have these skills and they would have to come from outside and be sub-contracted to. This brings again the problem of not enough accommodation and our people not having work. I don’t need to tell you all the ramifications of this.

The idea came to us to get a skills development program running in St Francis Bay that will certify and up-lift our residents who do not have any skills. Whether they end up working for local businesses or starting their own, working elsewhere or even Thyspunt, they now have skills and they can even uplift one another by helping build decent houses for themselves.

I have been in touch with Ingrid Daniel yesterday from Eastern Cape Premiers Council on Skills and discussed the proposal with her to start a training centre in St Francis Bay. She subsequently has spoken to Duncan Grenfell (Unit Head HCS Recruitment and Placement) of the Coega Development Corporation who has been working with Thyspunt for the same reasons. They want to use as many locals as possible.

Ingrid phoned me this morning to say that they are very excited about our proposal. She said that funding was immediately available for this project. They want to come out to see us in two weeks time to discuss the way forward.

To fast track this I would like to know the following from you:
1) Are you in support of this project?
2) Should you be inundated with work and need more employees or sub-contractors what skills would they need?
3) Would you be able to supply on the job training if need be?
4) Would you like to attend the meeting?
5) If you have any ideas please let us have them.

We look forward to hearing from you.
