Knowledge sharing with communities

Knowledge sharing with communities

2023 / 05 / 10

Skills development is a big part of EnviroServ’s interaction with communities around its areas of operation. Over the years, the company has demonstrated its unequivocal commitment to sharing its knowledge, expertise and resources for the empowerment of local community stakeholders.

In the last quarter of 2022, we had a two-day waste management training with members of the community, most of whom are members of the Shongweni monitoring committee.  The training was facilitated by Wilson Tlagadi on 24 and 25 November and was attended by a total of 22 people.  It was an intense 2 days.

Community members

On 24 February 2023, the external assessor concluded assessing the papers and an impressive 20 people’s certificates were deemed competent in the Identify, Collect, Classify and Handle Waste course. Only two people did not finish the course. Following engagements with community stakeholders, the community representatives thought that it would be a good idea to have an official certificate handover ceremony in the same venue that we received the training in.

The ceremony took place on 5 April 2023 at the Kwa-Linda Hall in Kwandengezi. This is the same venue where we hold our monitoring committee meetings. EnviroServ was well represented at this intimate event which included key community representatives and organisations.
