When dreams & determination meet.

From a young age I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur. Towards the end of 2016, I registered my own construction company and I wanted to start with something I could do hands on. While looking for a training centre, someone told me about the Abraham Kriel Emdeni Skills Development Centre. I registered and…

What’s in a name?

We hope you like our new banner. The change has been made in conjunction with a small change to our name and branding design.

My dearest caregivers

In ons program in Westbury het ons nie ’n enkele groot donateur wat verantwoordelikheid neem vir meeste van die onkoste om die program te bedryf nie.

Die wonder van nuwe lewe

Mawethe Hlumbayo is vol passie oor landbou en net soos die sade wat hy plant, het hy ook deur ‘n ontkiemingsfase gegaan tydens die opleiding wat hy by die “Emdeni Skills Development Centre”…

Childcare training makes a difference

In February 2016, a group of 30 child and youth care workers began a one year Level 4 accredited HWSETA course in Child and Youth Care Work with Abraham Kriel Childcare. The course was met with excitement as well as apprehension by the child and youth care workers who signed up for it. They did…
