South African Context
South Africa faces some major obstacles on its journey towards addressing the injustices of the past and to ensure that everyone participates in the economy.
We cannot wait for the education system to be fixed to act and that is exactly why The Clothing Bank was established. We provide previously disadvantaged South Africans who are unemployed with an alternative to formal employment by empowering them to become self-employed business people. This is often something they might not have considered or had the self-belief to pursue.
