"After high school I had searched for jobs for many years without success. Then I came across the advert on the LL-Tech Academy program. In such a short time I learned to fix cell phones, computers, printers and networking and now I am making some money to take care of myself" Nceba Mvakade
Before I came here at GLLI I didn’t know anything practical on both IT software and hardware. All I knew was theory from FET. But now I’m proud to say I can strip down a computer and rebuild it from scratch. I’m able to fix broken cell phones, laptops, in fact any computer hardware. I have also registered my company which I believe will make huge money in my location at Mqanduli. This is a dream come true for me because it is exactly what I have been wishing for"
"When I came here I knew nothing about IT repairs. But through the LL-Tech Academy I have
learned to troubleshoot and repair cell phones and laptops. Repairing cell phones is my favourite
part. I have also established my business and making some money and even though it is not yet
sustainable I can see that it will bring me much money in future" Odwa Mgudlwa
"I previously had an IT theoretical background but now I am able to implement it. This includes knowing how to pick apart a laptop, printer or cell phone and put it back together to find a problem and fix it. I also wrote a complete professional business plan for my company. I did my budget and entire cash flow for the first year of operation. The business plan made me have a clear vision of what I want to achieve" Abongile Mona
