Centro Cultural Santa Cruz, N GO Rosto Solidário (Angola)

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

Santa Cruz Cultural Centre (SCCC) is a Resources and Vocational Training Centre located in Uíje (Angola) and owned and managed by the Passio-nist Missionaries, one of Rosto Solidário’s local partners in Angola. Based in a sustainable social business framework, this Centre offers several services and facilities to the community, especially its students: the facilities consist of a library and an audio-visual centre; the services include IT professional training, graphic design services, cultural events, etc. The Centre’s trainees face a demanding job market with high unemployment rates and very few job opportunities either in the public sector or in private sector com-panies, both of which very competitive as they usually require skilled labour. As opportunities are scarce, most youth are self-employed in the informal market.

  • Briefing on both local context and project background and aims;
  • Meetings with the Centre’s users, trainers and Board;

  • Analyse SCCC business model and assess its sustainability as a social business;
  • Propose and implement relevant training to SCCC staff;
  • Final Assessment of the informal training experience with SCCC staff

THIS EXPERIENCE WILL ALLOW YOU TO:

  • Experience the challenges and the opportunities of a social busi-ness that creates employment;
  • Learn about the local context with a particular understanding about the job market for skilled youth in the IT sector;
  • Reflect on the importance of technology in development
