Our Enterprise Development programme is a 2 year holistic training programme that empowers unemployed mothers by helping them set up small retail trading business.  We source excess clothing from the major retailers in South Africa and use this clothing as the tool to teach.  Each woman starts running a small business within six weeks of joining the programme and the objective is that she should earn R4500 per month which is enough to feed, clothe and educate her family.  Our motto is "Don’t give a women a fish, teach a women to fish AND teach her how to sell her fish". The Clothing Bank is considered a best practice example of sustainable Enterprise Development.
