Phaphama SEDI is a student-run NPO which aims to increase the entrepreneurial capacity of small businesses in Kayelitsha and Philippi. This year, one of the businesses that we have been working with is called Bokamoso Media, a photography business co-owned by two dynamic individuals, Asiphe and Emecca. 

Sadly, Bokamoso Media was robbed a few weeks ago and they do not have the funds to replace what was taken. Through crowdfunding, we hope to get Bokamoso back on its feet so the incident becomes only a minor set-back on their road to success.

The following was taken: 

Canon EOS750D
-SanDisk 16gb sd card
-Canon bag 
-Huawei cellphone 
-1 Terabyte storage hard drive 
-2 Terabytes storage hard drive

Phaphama SEDI Logo

Phaphama SEDI is a non-profit organisation that was started in 2014 by a small group of dynamic UCT students. The aim of Phaphama was to increase the entrepreneurial capacity of small businesses in the Khayelitsha and Philippi area by connecting them with a consulting team of senior UCT students.

Each entrepreneur is teamed for the entirety of the programme with three student consultants. These groups, comprising of diverse academic backgrounds and skill sets, mean that each business owner will receive consistent and specialised attention throughout the year, in addition to the overarching skills-building training they will receive in the module workshops.

In 2014, Phaphama began work with 7 entrepreneurs from Khayelitsha. Over the years we have developed and in 2018 we worked with 23 entrepreneurs from Khayelitsha, Philippi, Lange and Belhar.

To date we have worked with over 60 small to medium enterprises and over 200 student consultants. In doing so, we labour tirelessly to make success a reality for our entrepreneurs, at the same time we seek to equip our consultants with practical skills. We want student consultants to experience what it is like to work with the local business community.
