ADESSA congratulates Computers 4 Kids, one of its members, on being awarded a 3 year tender to train 500 000 Western Cape citizens on how to connect to and use the limited free wi-fi access at the 384 Neotel / WCG hotspots across the Province.
The impact that Phase 1 has made in the Cape Town Metro has been phenomenal and we are looking forward to the next two Phases where the impact will be even bigger. Citizens have the option to complete a quiz and receive an electronic certificate signed by Minister Winde.
The ADESSA voice is becoming stronger by the day, with more companies signing up as members. One of the steps of re-imagining the organization was a review of this website, as well as the creation of a new logo.
One of our members, Fuel Online, kindly did the redesign of the website layout and logo for us.
