CDC Graphic Design Internship 2018

CDC is a development agency enabling sustainable socio-economic development in South Africa, through investment, infrastructure development, SMME development, mentorship, and facilitating skills transfer.



ABOUT OUR NAME 

Coega is pronounced ’koo-gha’ with a guttural sound forming the last syllable. Coega would have originally come from the Nguni word Khoekhoen which means ’ground water’. Nguni is a language group to which Xhosa belongs.

The Xhosa word for Coega is Ngqura, and this is the name used for the adjacent Port of Ngqura, a deep water port which adds to business investment opportunities offered by the Coega industrial development zone.

To pronounce Ngqura correctly, requires an ability to sound the click as used in the Xhosa language.

To successfully achieve this, will likely require of you to travel to this most spectacular part of South Africa, where you are welcome to ask one of the many friendly Xhosa people to instruct you. 

Of course, there are so many other reasons to visit Coega as well, which will become more and more apparent as you travel through other parts of this website
