Eziko restaurant is an 80 seater facility offering home cooked traditional African food as well as Western cuisine.
Eziko Cooking and Catering School, located in the heart of Langa Township just 15kms from the centre of Cape Town, was established in 1996 by a former Langa High School teacher, Victor Mguqulwa - a one of a kind leader. His mission is to address the unemployment that strikes the township communities which is not fully solved by formal education.
Victors' vision is that the community can only develop by making people claim responsibility for their problems and their future. By taking the approach that you must 'teach people how to fish rather than catching the fish for them', Eziko is dedicated to provide people with life and career-oriented skills in cooking and catering and “empower” them to find employment so they can provide for themselves and their families.
Students are carefully selected and begin their training at the Eziko Cooking and Catering Training Centre where they gain some basic experience in the Eziko Restaurant. They then are placed in one of the sponsoring catering establishments for an intensive 6-month programme.
