POPUP Nelson Mandela Bay, PE Certificate Ceremony


On Sunday 9 July 2017 our POPUP Nelson Mandela Bay Centre in Port Elizabeth celebrated our second Certificate Ceremony for this brand new Centre at the Doxa Deo Framesby church. Our learners and their guests celebrated with the Doxa Deo members during the service. Two communities who are worlds apart, were building a bridge to positively impact South Africa’s “friendly” city.

24 POPUP learners received certificates for completing POPUP’s Life Skills programme, during the celebration service. The learners were very dedicated during the 4 weeks and proud to receive their certificates.

Bulelwa Mpofu said: "I entered POPUP thinking I will receive a skill, but during these 4 weeks we received much more than a skill, we received Life Skills. A foundation to build our life on". Another learner testified by saying: "You cannot see that I have changed from the outside, but from the inside I have changed a lot. It brought a light into my life." - Lukho Ngudle. Many more testimonies came from these learners and 6 learners decided to get baptised. This group started with Adult Education and training on 31 July 2017.

We raise City Changers, to change our city for the better.
