About Us

POPUP (People Upliftment Programme) established at the end of 1999, has a holistic approach to the upliftment of under-privileged communities. Since 2005 POPUP has operated a fully-fledged skills training and development centre to ensure independence, restoration and true upliftment of individuals through market-related, cost-effective training.

POPUP has developed several programmes over the years to ensure the fulfilment of the individual’s needs – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.

The safety, security and good health of our learners and employees is our highest priority.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, POPUP has implemented all the regulations announced by the South African Government as well as recommendations by the WHO and other health organisations.

Our Skills Programme schedule has been interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown. POPUP will publish new skills dates as soon as practically possible.

Your patience is highly appreciated.
