All of which underpins and can be linked to over 25 income generating business models. Why? Because these livelihood skills ensures just that – the saving of lives lost to disasters and the prevalence of fires aggravated by looming food scarcities that is already affecting vulnerable communities more. The target market learners* are equipped with skills to create sustainable entrepreneurs as well as to make career-seekers professionally more marketable to business owners based on having SETA aligned programmes and being work-culture-fit-ready as the Prorgamme outcomes also supports a Work Integrated Learning opportunity for prospective employees.

COMMUNITY SAFETY CHAMPION HEROES TRAINED DURING LOCKDOWN
Close to a hundred youth, unemployed persons and non-profit organisation representative volunteers from inter alia Ikasi Soccer School For Girls, Khulisa Social Solutions, Centre of Excellence Bishop Lavis, G-Citi (Elsies River, I-Can Centre Campus) have already been trained at no cost to their organisations, to gain basic first responder skills in fire-fighter / first-aider skills since February 2020 for the purposes stated.
Real H&S Challenges In Our Communities
The prevalence of fires and medical emergencies create devastating aftermaths every year in the Western Cape. Health and safety emergencies and natural disasters will always have long term negative effects on communities, companies and our economy. Historically disadvantaged and poorer communities take longer to recover from disasters.
The Learners – Target Market
Non-profit organisation’s with a focussed ‘drive’ that encourages youth to become volunteer members to do good for their community and who can be motivated by possibilities of kickstarting a career-path in health & safety & security.

The Long Term Solution
Increase the pool of DEL and SETA trained, first on the scene responders by providing them with free, basic accredited fire-fighter and first-aid training
Unemployment, gangsterism, under-resourced health facilities are but a few of the ‘bread and butter’ realities that significantly hamper poor communities from recovering faster from disasters. Employers experience the ripple effects of increased, costs of absence and spiralling replacement labour costs long after disaster had struck.
State and private medical and disaster risk management teams often face signifiant challenges in accessing and reaching poorer, disadvantaged communities in times of disaster and medical emergencies in the Western Cape for reasons including eg bad and no road planning especially in informal settlements; personal safety and security risks.
Benefits Of Training
Lives can be saved when people in their own communities are trained to apply basic, accredited fire, health, safety and medical skills as ‘first responders’ whilst waiting for state or private response teams to arrive. Skills gained will make learners’ more marketable as job-seekers and they can choose to pursue fire, medical or health and safety compliance careers as employees or as self-employed entrepreneurs.

Your donation contributes to the training for Community Safety Champions learners to be upskilled as first-responders in basic health and safety skills (first-aid and fire-fighting, etc) to support their communities in times of fires and emergency medical disasters whilst waiting for arrival of the state’s official medical teams to arrive on the scene of emergencies in communities.
Main PurposeOf The Crowdfunding Campaign
Fires break out regularly and frequently in disadvantaged communities for many reasons. The ability to prevent, support or recover from natural disasters is slowed down significantly and often detrimentally in the long term due to adverse socio-economic challenges within communities.
A significantly larger pool of fire-fighters and first aiders at grassroots level can potentially save more lives and more homes in times of disaster.
Our campaign for medical, health and safety ‘first-responder’ training for *community volunteer workers is part of an integrated, holistic training and skills upliftment plan to complement the Western Cape government’s FIRE IS EVERYONES FIGHT campaign as an add-on, accompanying solution driven by and through the community for the community with benefits to the youth, the unemployed and a driver of entrepreneurship in a health and safety career space.
Not for TomorrowBut for Today!
Corporates, individuals, members of the public are respectfully invited to donate funds to a Backabuddy campaign via this crowdfunding appeal, to cover the costs of training and basic equipment such as fire extinguishers and first aid kits.
