Mineke Foundation has been providing vocational & business training programs since 2015. In 2020, we had to temporarily cease operations during the Covid-19 lockdown. We used that time to develop business plans to transition our vocational training school into social enterprises and received funding to do so. Currently, we are starting up 2 social enterprises.

A social enterprise is a commercial business that has uses its profits to support Mineke Foundation’s projects in the Dabwe Town community. We also want to use our social enterprises to create jobs, especially for former trainees who completed our vocational training.
