Volunteers helping communities in Cape Town

The skills develop goal of this project is to help local adults become self sufficient and productive members within their community. We thrive achieve this by teaching members of the community building and crafting skills which they can use to manufacture products to sell and support themselves and their families.




During the project, volunteers will teach and assist the locals in building different kinds of products from reclaimed materials (i.e. pallets, bottles, tires, denim, etc.). The profits from the sale of these products will go back to the individuals who helped to build them.



Volunteers on this project have been working very hard with local entrepreneurs making different types of furniture out of reclaimed wood. Every single piece is hand made and some of the products are finished off with a unique print like our Neslon Mandela coffee table. If you're interested in any of the products or would like to have something custom made, feel free to contact us and we'll send you more photos of other finished products.
