About Genesis Community IT Initiative Campus

Genesis Community IT initiative (G-CITI) is a registered Non-Profit organisation that was established to address the dire economic needs of previously disadvantaged communities within the broader Cape Flats region. G-CITI does this through the provision of extensive Information Communication and Technology capacity building initiatives and community support.


The changing economic climate that propels South Africa towards a growing tertiary sector, the high unemployment rate and the challenging education system, provided much-needed impetus to the establishment of G-CITI.  In this regard, our carefully formulated organisational objectives aim to prepare and upskill a large section of the population for a new and ever-evolving economy with its own set of labour requirements. These labour requirements are inextricably linked to a rapidly expanding technology base. New jobs in the economy are steadfastly replacing older ones and our educational system is currently severely strained to deal with this shift. This is where G-CITI fills the gap through the provision of future-oriented job preparation and services.


The main objectives of G-CITI and aim to:


  • Enable communities through access to broadband technology, to participate digitally for personal development and business development purposes.
  • Become a hub of activity for technological and digital development for the Elsies River and adjacent communities.
  • Empower all citizens with basic digital literacy skills for entrepreneurial development and employment opportunities.
  • Provide skills training and entrepreneurial development including business guidance and support.
  • Provide opportunities for creativity through social innovation projects.
  • Support primary and high school students by improving education through technology.
