“We are proud of this achievement as these learners studied under very difficult circumstances of Covid-19. We are excited that they did not get discouraged by the challenges brought about by Covid-19 as they were on the front line. We hope that the skills that they acquired will assist them in their personal growth,” said Magwaza.

SBuys Academy training manager Jalia Meyer said the graduation would not have been a success without the support of stakeholders.

“On behalf of SBuys Academy I would like to thank you for the support that you have given all our learners and the precious time you offered them during their long hours of study, for that we salute you,” Meyer said.

The Progressive Primary Health Care (PPHC) is a non-profit company registered under the Companies Act 71, of 2008. Its goal is to provide quality and comprehensive primary health care services to the most disadvantaged through training, advocacy and health promotion.
