Funda Centre is up and running again thanks to the efforts of Senior Citizens Focus Cooperative, a NGO that has taken over its affairs.
The Senior Citizens Focus Cooperative assumed control of the centre last year and has a 10-year lease. It is already offering 23 skills training courses to the community. About 5 400 people have already signed on for nursing, catering, carpentry and business skills.
“We want people to be able to work on their own after two years. Then they can contribute to society by eradicating poverty, crime and improving the health of the community,” says Steve Senama, a member of the board.
