freshStart, Sedgefield, is a not for profit organisation that aims to create new possibilities, on the Garden Route, South Africa, by helping children to help themselves and break the cycle of poverty, hopelessness and helplessness. This is primarily done through projects involving the recycling and/or upcycling of waste material.

The Smutsville Recycle Swop Shop is the first FreshStart Sedgefield empowerment project. The Smutsville Recycle Swop Shop now has over 600 children registered as collectors… with children learning practically to help lift themselves out of the poverty cycle.

The challenge is to create a new generation of youth who are self-sufficient and are equipped to make a fresh start.
