Students who graduated from a three-month skills training course at Oasis, in Schaapkraal.

Oasis free skills training centre in Schaapkraal held a graduation ceremony on Friday November 9 for those who took part in a three-month skills training course. The course formed part of the City of Cape Town’s street people programme and included welding, landscaping and basic computer skills. Andre le Roux, manager of Oasis, said skills are offered to men who are recovering addicts. The next step to recovery was to get skills training to arm them with the right tools for job hunting. “We provided motivational sessions as we have a pastor on premises,” said Mr Le Roux, who also lives on the premises and said the students are close to his heart.
