What We Do
Our fourth project is the SEW Academy. This is a partnership with Sorbet, one of the leading beauty franchises in South Africa.
We recruit unemployed young women who have a passion for the beauty industry and train them to become qualified nail technicians who are job ready.
Sorbet, (which includes brand such as “Sorbet, Sorbet Man, Sorbet Dry Bar and Amazi), then endeavour to employ these nail technicians in their salons through their network of franchise retail outlets. We aim to train at least 80 technicians per year.
