This project employs 70 women to hand-stitch shoes for a fair wage. The women are taught life-skills and work in a safe environment.
This project aims to address the problems that AIDS has brought to the rural areas of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. In this province of South Africa there are high rates of unemployment and Soul of Africa seeks to address this issue by tackling problems at a grass-roots level. We offer employment to previously unemployed women by teaching them how to hand-stich shoes. The women work in a safe environment and are paid a fair wage, enabling them to earn money and provide for their families.
We operate as a social enterprise that provides previously un-employed women with jobs. We aim at improving the high rates of unemployment in the province of KwaZulu Natal.
The project will employ approx. 70 women giving them life skills and paying them a fair wage creating self-sustainability and empowerment. (250)
