The local training teams have been working hard in the townships impacting where they can and breaking down suspicions and prejudices. Rock-face trainers are viewed as aid workers.

Thirty folks attended the new level two course, whilst around sixty five first timers boosted by twenty five babies stretched the UK trainers to the gunnels.
