The upskilling and development of communities within which industries operate is critical to ensuring economic growth and a prosperous future for the country. Masslift Africa is having a positive impact on alleviating unemployment by providing employment opportunities for those communities within which the company operates. Once employed, the company also aids in their skills development by constantly providing mentorship and training for them to stay up to date with the industry.
Masslift Africa continues to be committed to build on these existing foundations to ensure that economic benefits and opportunities are spread equitably across South Africa.
