Capital City Housing NPC is committed to a holistic approach in housing provision, and as such, we aim to cater to the needs of the person in total, and not just the provision of housing.
After consultation with our tenants, one of the needs we felt that was not being met at the developments was the need for some kind of after school activity – we heard from tenants that kids come home from school and get up to mischief because there is nothing for them to do. As such, we developed the vision for PC centres, stocked with the latest computers, with high speed internet access, for the young people of Acacia Park to utilize to help with after school homework and projects.
The PC Centres will also have a positive spin-off for adults, as they will no longer need to go to Nedbank Plaza and elsewhere to do things like write CV’s for job applications, or do online banking, and so forth.
There are 12 computers in the Acacia Park centre and 6 in the Signal Hill Centre, each with an internet connection.
