Johannesburg, (South Africa) -- A course in hospitality and tourism

In November the first graduation of young women from Lakeview Catering School took place. The school opened in Johannesburg in February with four students from rural areas of South Africa. Lakeview is an initiative of the Komati Foundation for Women’s Development, whose aim is to provide training in the area of hospitality and tourism to girls who have finished their secondary studies.

Besides their classes related to the service sector such as cooking, laundry, and housekeeping, the girls did practical work in prestigious hotels and restaurants of the city. They also received ethical and moral formation through classes, videos, case studies, and tutorials.

The young women expressed their gratitude to Saint Josemaría for having opened up, through his teachings, a new panorama of service through work. Their academic year ended with a Mass of thanksgiving celebrated by the school’s chaplain.
