Eziko Cooking and Catering School is a community-based project located in Langa, one of the oldest townships in Cape Town. Eziko acts as an entry-level skill center in catering and the hospitality field. Eziko specializes in food preparation and cooking courses, baking, and drinks service, preparing students for a career in cooking and catering.

A student body from previously disadvantaged communities within the greater Cape Town area, Eziko also has students enrolled from other African countries such as Angola, Zimbabwe, and Cameroon. The school’s six-month training program in basic cooking and catering skills facilitates in-service training to familiarize its students with first-hand work experience. Eziko assists in placing their students at well-known hospitality businesses such as Cape Town International Convention center, Cape Milner hotel, Sky Chef, Bidvest foodservice training, Caturra Coffee, and International Wine Education center. The cooking and catering school has been awarded provisional accreditation and registered with the South African Government Department of Labor.


We invite those who value this beautiful country and its people to join our cause, helping to support, protect and nurture it for generations to come.
