The Vuk'Uphile learnership project of the Department of Public Works, under its Expanded Public Works Programme, offered PD Naidoo & Associates (PDNA) the opportunity to address the lack of training and skills development in coastal areas and realise the adage of "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, but teach a man how to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime". Key to the project was attracting skills from previously disadvantaged communities, and involving skilled practitioners to transfer technical, management, administration and financial skills with the objective to mentor and train learners into becoming independent, skilled contractors.
