The learners were trained on skills such as: how to compile a great CV, “acing your interview” skills, Excel and Word training and how to search for a suitable position amongst others. The students were all supplied with training materials to take home and to end things off, one lucky student won a tablet.

Digital Planet provides monthly sponsorship to Snow White Crèche in Alexandra. The funds are used to feed the kids daily as well as to purchase essential items to maintain operations in the organisation.

To keep the kiddies warm in the cold, the team raised over R4000 to purchase beanies and scarves for the kids of Snow White Creche in Alexandra.

Each year, we host the little ones of the Snow White Crèche in Alexandra for their annual Christmas party at Yeesh kids entertainment venue. The kids are given a nutritious lunch, playtime at the venue as well as individualised Christmas gifts which include toys and clothing.

Ukuvikela Day Care Centre takes care of thirty children from unemployed families ranging from three months to five years of age. We contributed to the building of adequate ablution and other critical facilities for the youngsters. To make sure that the kids understood the value of good hygiene, we created educational hygiene posters which are placed around the school.
