The Social Security Commission Development Fund will train 148 unemployed

Namibians in Food and Beverages preparation as well as Culinary Arts. The

support by the SSC will come in the form of a grant to the Southern Cross

Human Capital Management Centre.

SSC’s Rino Muranda commenting on the initiative said the Development Fund

of the SSC aimed at conducting training schemes and employment schemes

approved by the President of the Republic of Namibia for the benefit of socio-
economically disadvantaged people who are unemployed.

Southern Cross Human Capital Management Centre, Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira

also “Social Security is filling a very crucial gap of skills training and youth

unemployment and with very significant valuable impact addressing basic social

need/challenge at the bottom line of society and most importantly in the most

needed areas. It should continue doing good for the ordinary young person on

the street and the broader Namibian society”,

The grant enabled the Southern Cross Human Capital Management Centre to

take youth from the street and empower them with skills in the Hospitality

Industry that enhance their employability. Some of the trainees who

completed their course are employed mainly at food outlets and Shoprite in

Keetmanshoop. A group of 20 students have placement at some lodges for

internship.
