The KZN Museum held its annual Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day recently. This year the initiative is an outreach one, with 30 learners, both boys and girls, under the theme #MoreThanADay.
The focus for workshop 1 was on advancing gender equality amid the Covid-19 crisis as well as exposing and empowering young people to continue with their studies by providing them with information regarding careers and workplace experience.
The Isiqalo Youth Development also participated in the event as guest speakers - Mr Ntokozo Tono (who is currently studying towards his Masters of Social Science) and Mr Thobani Zondi (who is currently studying towards his Master of Law) motivated and encouraged the learners.
Information packs were disseminated to the learners as well as links to the Cell C website (online test and tools to assist with studies) as well as careers within the museum environment.
Workshop 2 will be in July as an outreach initiative and the final workshop will be held at the KZN Museum in August, where learners will receive their certificates of participation.
