Help Hillbrewed Re-open after Looting

Help Hillbrewed Re-open after Looting

Personal message

Tebogo (Tebza) Mabye is a young South African entrepreneur from inner city Johannesburg. Raised in Hillbrow, where he has been involved in youth and community development for many years, in 2019 he realised his long-standing dream of starting his own coffee shop – Hillbrewed – in Ellis Park. He had to close his business in March 2020 due to the COVID lockdown, but he persevered and re-opened Hillbrewed in Jewel City in February 2021.

Sadly, Hillbrewed was looted in the recent riots. He and his 5 staff members are unable to operate, and they do not have insurance to cover their losses. This campaign aims to raise R60 000 so they can replace their professional coffee machine and grinder and start operating again.

Please donate to help support this small business to re-open. Tebza is more than an entrepreneur. He is a dedicated community-builder at a time when that is more needed than ever. He is committed to the revitalisation of inner city Johannesburg, to supporting and encouraging young people to realise their dreams, and to providing a space where courageous conversations can take place and where new ideas can be birthed.

Hillbrewed mirrors Tebza’s spirit. It is a place that supports and strengthens community. It hosts community conversations, poetry events, a library of African literature for patrons to read and serves as a gathering place for many. Your donation will assist Hillbrewed to re-open and once again become a place where people can gather to discuss, to plan, to dream – and to drink delicious coffee. 

All funds raised will be paid directly from Back-a Buddy into Hillbrewed's account.
