Revamp The Valley is a registered NPO, based in Fish Hoek, outside Cape Town. Start-up funding is required for a long-term initiative providing workspaces or hotdesks for small entrepreneurs who may not have resources to establish their own business but have valuable skills to offer. The project encourages customers to bring items to be repaired or upcycled, thereby preventing them being thrown into a landfill and providing work for skilled people in the Valley region.
We are looking for a physical space in the town of Fish Hoek, and also rent "pop-up" containers to place in areas across the region. Additional funds will be raised to hire mentors and trainers to teach entrepreneurs how to build their own business. A mark of our success will be members leaving to start their own venture, returning only to teach their skills to others.
The level of unemployment in the region is dire and Revamp The Valley aims to preserve and support our human ecology while building a strong community democracy. This project can achieve all that in one location.
