Dionysus is about to embark on a learnership project funded by Services Seta for a large group of unemployed learners. They will be working towards the National Certificate: Business Administration Services level 3 qualifications. These learners hail from Applesbosch (between Tongaat and Wartburg), Umbumbulu on the KZN south coast and Wentworth/Merewent in eThekwini.
The learners are all from disadvantaged backgrounds and have few opportunities to obtain interesting content that not only introduces them to concepts that promote an active and alternative lifestyle, but also aids them in improving their communication skills.
With this in mind Jeannette Shelton, one of Dionysus’s Programme Managers approached Go Multi, a publishing company which caters for fitness, health and adventure sports orientated readers.
The full-colour glossy paged magazine is packed with upbeat content, ideal for tempting the learners to read and get inspired to be the best they can be.
The magazines will be distributed to the learners, as well as being used in class for topic discussions and activities.
Go Multi was founded by Publisher Deon Braun in 2003. Deon says “the people who read Go Multi are typically attracted to exercise, health and adventure. They believe in self-improvement and are not afraid of failure”. Their mission statement is: Life is too short for one sport.
When Jeannette phoned and spoke to Michael Campbell, their Distribution Manager, he was delighted, as they were looking for organisations to donate their magazines to, and jumped at the chance to help our learners out.
On behalf of their learners, Dionysus would like to thank Deon and Michael for their generous donation.
