The Intervention with Microfinance for AIDS & Gender Equity (IMAGE) is a community-centered programme that combines micro-financing with a gender and HIV training curriculum called Sisters for Life. IMAGE is the first intervention globally to conclusively demonstrate that by addressing poverty and economic inequalities the physical and sexual abuse of women can be curtailed. More than 25,000 women in Gauteng, North West Province and Limpopo have improved their circumstances economically, materially and psychologically.
We invest in skills and apprenticeship training in Cape Town in the Western Cape. A collaborative initiative with four other partners, namely: Northlink College, Empro Training Services, the South African Oil and Gas Alliance and the Chemicals Industries Education and Training Authority. The programme trains a number of men and women in basic skills annually, who then have the potential of being employed during the annual safety and maintenance inspection at the refinery when additional capacity is required as well as enabling these communities to better empower themselves by becoming more employable.
