This is the first batch of
beneficiaries under the program launched in
March 2017 which seeks to help bridge the skill
gap in the automotive industry in the country by
providing the youth with training and upskilling
Speaking during the graduation, Simba
Corporation Executive Director Adil Popat,
hailed the program, saying the unique duo
training initiatives has empowered the
beneficiaries to face the industry.
“Unda Foundation entails a
comprehensive training in Automotive Technology
and Automobile Body Works Technology and is
presented in three levels (grade III, II and I)
and examined by National Industrial Training
Authority (NITA) at the end of each level.
“The program targets both girls and
boys, our first group had several girls
completing the course. Education financing
options are available to students from
marginalized backgrounds and this makes sure we
do not lock any one out of this great
opportunity.” said Mr. Popat
The “Unda Future” project was the
Simba Foundation’s flagship under the education
pillar to provide technical and entrepreneurship
skills training to underprivileged youth.
The project is run in partnership with
The Eastland’s College of Technology and St.
Kizito Institute of Vocational Training.
