UCS Solutions has supported Learn to Earn for a number of years. It has funded students through various programs, have upgraded their IT infrastructure and provide on-going financial and technical support. UCS also support Learn to Earn through purchasing products created by their graduates.

Learn to Earn was established in 1989 to train and equip unemployed people with vocational skills so that they may become self-supportive and independent. Learn to Earn is a skills development and job creation organisation seeking to develop people, especially unemployed people, socially, economically, emotionally and spiritually. Their skills development and training centres are based in vibrant Khayelitsha and the seaside town of Hermanus and Claremont. Here they partner with unemployed people to eradicate unemployment and other legacies of injustice in South Africa. Since 1989 they have trained more than 11 500 unemployed people with market-related skills.

Among other social responsibility programmes the organisation has is The IRONMAN 4 the Kidz Charity’s aim is to raise awareness for the circumstances of the less fortunate children, who often come from dysfunctional family backgrounds. Improving the quality of these children’s lives and making them more meaningful.

The charity started when the realisation to raise money for needy children by participating in the IRONMAN South Africa events, through: 3.8 km Sea Swim, 180km bike, 42.2km run. This seems like an intermediating task to complete, but “raising funds for the children is a great motivator.” An employee from UCS-Solutions Ernst Hattingh participates in the Ironman tasks therefore UCS sponsors him to represent the children and the organisation.
