Phakamisa

Phakamisa, meaning “to lift up”, is the name of a program instituted by Wahl aimed at providing barbering training as a way to uplift segments of the community in need.  Candidates who pass an initial screening participate in in training courses held at local churches and upon graduation are given the supplies to become a self employed street barber. 

Wahl Clipper (Pty) Ltd has instituted as part of its social responsibility programme a barbering training model to uplift segments of the community in need. This model suits individuals who may find getting formal employment difficult due to being a student, illiteracy, being an ex-offender or a parolee.

The aim is to train and supply a start-up business for street barbering whereby the individual is self-employed. Twelve training modules held every second week by a qualified barber or salon owner is undertaken in the premises of a local church.

Candidates are screened prior to acceptance, must be of sober habits, drug free and self-motivated. A basic business plan of how they intend to implement this business in a suitable location must also be forthcoming.

 (This is very basic plan (hand written or even verbal) to test the commitment of the candidate. They can get assistance to put their thoughts and ideas on paper.

Phakamisa has been joint initiative through two local churches and is usually facilitated by a nominated person to oversee the project.
