A story of hope at The Sewing Cafe
Our partners at The Sewing Café provide skills training to unemployed and unskilled residents who live in Masiphumelele to help combat poverty and unemployment. These trainees are then given an opportunity to make an income by mass-producing items which are sold to businesses and individuals. To save their employees from losing income during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sewing Café now produces and sells cloth masks, as the regulations in South Africa state that it is mandatory to wear a mask in public to reduce the chances of infecting others. This has enabled their employees to continue working so they can provide for their families.
Over the last few weeks, we have distributed these masks to our ECD families along with the food packs we provide and our staff on the front lines also use these masks when serving the community of Masiphumelele. To place an online order, fill in the form HERE and email the POP (Proof of Payment) to firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your order.
