Being of Service to the Nation

Koum started with the simple desire to make a difference.

We see the strife that results from education shortcomings, unemployment, and poverty. We decided to act. – Evidence shows that skills development can change the lives of individuals, families, and communities. – Our ground zero is the South Durban Basin and many other communities within which we work. Unemployment, school drop-out rates, poverty and crime are rife.

KOUM PROJECTS is a community focussed Education and Skills Development organisation with the following key objectives:

  • Training and skills development.
  • Advance skills development in the field of engineering.
  • Assist school leavers to complete their matric.
  • Provide bursaries for post school learning opportunities.
  • Provide rehabilitation and reintegration opportunities for those who need and are committed to overcoming such challenges.
  • Build local, national, and international partnerships to further skills development.
  • Build partnerships with local businesses and international companies and funders to further skills development.

Our programs are based on our belief that:

Dreams are achievable

Hope in the future needs to be restored

Education and skills development can change your life

Communities and societies are stronger working together
