The ETDP Seta programme was implemented in two stages. In the first phase learners were given productive skills required to operate in a cleaning and hygiene environment. These skills will allow our beneficiaries to start the following business, laundry business, vacuum cleaning businesses, car wash business, cleaning of hazardous environments business and general hygiene and cleaning business.
This project was implemented in Buffalo City Metro area, Amathole District, Alfred Nzo District, Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, and Joe Gqabi District. Phase two of the project related to the provision of starter packs for the purposes of running a business. All projects were provided with the starter packs required for the purposes of starting cleaning business.
