Reutech Communications supports local community…

Reutech Communications, a division of Reutech (Pty) Limited, and owned by JSE listed group, Reunert Limited, partnered with the Philangethemba Trust to build and equip a computer training centre at the Tholulwazi Highschool in the Molweni Valley, Kwa-Zulu Natal.

"This centre will be used by local school children and the community members alike" says Tholulwazi school principle Mr ThamiShawula.

The training centre was launched on 24 January 2014 and is well equipped with 50 workstations for learners to master basic computer skills and programs, under the tutelage of trainer SiyaKubheka, currently the computer trainer from the Tholulwazi High school.

In sweltering heat, the launch was celebrated with traditional Zulu dancing, choir singing and thanks giving from local dignitaries. A wonderful lunch was enjoyed by 250 learners and guests from the community and representatives from Reutech and Reunert.

Says Martin de Beer, CEO of Reutech Communications: “Our company, together with the Philangethemba Trust, has a long term vision to provide relevant technical computer skills to assist learners and members of the community, to qualify for entry-level jobs in mainstream industry”. Reutech has already employed members of the community and will develop selected individuals with specific skills required in the industry, thus playing a major role in creating employment.
