CV Projects SA is committed to the training and development of both its existing members of staff and learners. The company is dedicated to taking on learners and training them in the basics of both carpentry and joinery. Such learnerships ensure the empowerment of unemployed youngsters, providing them with the necessary skills to take forward in the trade and providing a solid foundation for a career in the construction industry.
We have implemented a social responsibility programme in Durban and we have an ongoing commitment with The Durban Chamber of Commerce and the Ethekweni Municipality to take on unemployed learners and empower them with basic skills in carpentry and joinery. 90% of our current staff compliment were previously unemployed citizens of Durban.
Our 2017 Leanership Programme
On the 4th of August 2017, CV Projects SA celebrated their 2nd graduation ceremony in the Learnership Pramme- Furniture Making, accredited by the FP&M SETA and powered by CVP SA. CV Projects proudly presents the eleven (11) unemployed youth graduates that have persevered during the programme with two (2) graduates in absence.
Enterprise Development and Empowerment of Entrepreneurs
C & R Shopfitters & Joiners, Zulu Mnguni Enterprises and CTI Projects were established as empowered companies affiliated with CV Projects SA. As a significant part of their empowerment programme, CV Projects SA is committed to empowering staff that would otherwise never have the opportunity to become successful entrepreneurs. With this as the motivating factor, the management of CV Projects approached budding staff members who showed great potential to set up Zulu Mnguni Enterprises and CTI Projects.
The Zulu Mnguni Empowerment Success Story
Zulu Mnguni Enterprises and CTI Projects owned by previously disadvantaged staff of CV Projects have entered into an agreement with CV Projects to be independent contractors to the company as opposed to employees. The success of this goal is driven by an intensive training process to which both parties are committed. The empowered companies are assisted with their finances and monitored by a third party administrator to aid them succeed with this venture. This has proved to be a positive step for CTI Projects and C & R Shopfitters as they are now able to stand on their own feet and are successfully trading independently. Zulu Mnguni Enterprises still remain and feel secure being affiliated with C V Projects.
Zulu Mnguni is currently registered with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) as a 4GB Company.
Their Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) rating is level 3.
