This initiative aims to upskill mothers of children with disabilities residing in the Ugu District of KZN and essentially assist in setting up and running a sustainable business model. These women will be mentored and placed on to a sewing learnership, ultimately resulting in the production of bags, shoes and other goods which will be outsourced to various companies who have committed, through letters of intent and future contracts, to utilising the services of the Hub.
This is a new venture creation opportunity and is 51% Black-owned, which means that the learners will be shareholders in the business.
How to get involved:
Funding a sewing learnership will allow corporates to gain valuable points towards the Skills Development element of their B-BBEE scorecard, as well as assist individuals in becoming active contributors towards their community and the economy at large.
