Vocational training partnership in South Africa successfully concluded

Six years ago, the Steinfurt Warendorf District Guild of Craftsmen began its vocational training partnership with uMfolozi College in Richards Bay / South Africa with the signing of the cooperation agreement.

Now Frank Tischner, CEO of Kreishandwerkerschaft Steinfurt Warendorf, and Aika Drescher, Head of international Projects, traveled to South Africa for the final workshop. Together with the long-term expert on site Oliver Petzold, they presented the results of their work to the inspection commission for the district craftsmen’s association. It is with pride and melancholy that this partnership will soon come to an end: with pride, because much has been achieved, even beyond the targets, and with melancholy, because friendships and personal connections with great appreciation have also developed over these years.

The history of this vocational training partnership, which was supported by the BMZ, the goals as well as the results were summarized clearly and condensed in the booklet “Evolve together” and can be downloaded here as a PDF.
