 The Peoples Community Centre, just outside the town of Pennington in KwaZulu-Natal, is an upliftment project which was set up by a local pastor to empower members of the local community.

The Saga Charitable Trust initially funded the land for this centre which now provides skills training in various trades, such as cement block-making, bricklaying, welding and plastering, as well as housing computer classes, a cookery school, literacy classes and a very succesful sewing co-operative.

All classes have proved very popular amongst the local community and several students who have taken computer classes have gone on to win scholarships to study at university. Graduates of the cookery school  have gone on to employment in local restuarants and the sewing co-operative has enabled many women to become financially independent and secure.
