any people walk to the big cities, in desperate need for survival, only to find that they are not qualified for any jobs. They end up in squatter camps, desperate and destitute.
Out of the Box are passionate about changing their situation... we teach skills, that will help them to find a job, start a small business or become a teacher of a skill.
We teach beading and jewellery making, candle making, computer literacy, office admin, electrical repair, embroidery, food gardening, knitting, lampshade making, screen printing, sewing, shoe making, soap making, woodwork, and when that is done we offer financial management and sales and marketing.
We would love a literacy partner, as most of the wonderful people who pass through our centre, need some help in learning how to read and write.
It costs us roughly R2,000 per person per course and R5,000 to set up a small home business. We cannot do this alone. We need help from you.
