Jikani hosts a fully equipped computer training centre, capable of providing IT training on Windows computers, as well as Raspberry Pi's. 

The centre also functions as a small business development centre, providing internet access, printing and photocopying services. 

Jikani also maintains a database of job-seekers and can assist with the creation of CV's and job applications.

Our community services include skills development, community development and supporting local projects with a positive impact on the Hogsback environment


Our charity shop has become a firm favourite for a cross section of the Hogsback community. The generous donations of clothes, books and household equipment, enables even the poorest of people to clothe their families.

The shop also provides an outlet for local crafters to sell and showcase their crafts. The income from the shop provides part-time employment for two ladies and covers the cost of electricity and expenses.


The Hogsback community library is housed on the Jikani premises, where a fully-furnished reading room provides a safe space for local children to enjoy the beauty of books. 

School children also enjoy a regular elders reading session, where they are encouraged to explore further books on their own as well.
