The Design26 Foundation provides free sewing skills training to teenage mothers and disadvantage girls between the age of 15 and 21 from Mitchells Plain and surrounding areas. Design26 Foundation has committed to reduce poverty through providing possible work, free sewing skills training on industrial sewing machines, develop and motivate the girl's mind-set through counselling; in the short word "empowering poor and vulnerable teenage girls through social business effort." To erradicate any barrierers that might prevent her from coming to training we provide a free transport and childing minding service. She will be able to generate an income by starting her own clothing manufacturing business or be skilled on industrial sewing machines enough so to work in any clothing manufacturing environment and avoid the risk of being exposed to drugs and alcohol abuse which leads to child abuse or a second unplanned pregnancy and be dependent on government social grants.
