Afrit Welder Opportunities
Nelson Phihlela was unemployed for three years before he successfully applied for a learnership at Afrit.

Nelson had no previous experience of welding and he laughs when he shares his journey. “Before this, welding was just a name. I had no idea what it really meant. Now I know all the machinery from laser to welding, Axl to robots. I didn’t think being a welder would be my career but I was unemployed since 2015 and Afrit helped me.”

The Science Lab Project
When NCP Chlorchem renovated Phomolong Secondary School’s science laboratory in 2017 they saw a powerful opportunity to impact future young learners.

Realising that most of the senior learners had never done a practical science experiment, they committed their own laboratory staff to hold laboratory sessions with the learners.

Bobcat beach cleanup
A beach littered with plastic and debris was the challenge a group of volunteers in KwaZulu Natal faced recently.

Bobcat Equipment South Africa stepped in as a proud sponsor and partner to Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa’s (WESSA’s) Big Treasure Beach Clean-up. The event coincided with the UN World Environment Day and World Ocean Day.
