The Grow our Valley team are super excited to be launching after an
intense time of dreaming, visioning and then actioning our ideas into
reality. Through community collaboration with women in the local
communities of Redhill and Masiphumalele we identified the need to work
together in sisterhood and create small micro businesses that can
sustain the women and their families.
Our mantra is 'small is beautiful' and recognise that by starting small
simple manageable businesses like sewing crafts and products and
offering services like cleaning and laundry within and outside their
communities it can create meaningful and sustainable change to the grim
cycle of poverty that is perpetuated over and over again by lack of jobs
and low wages that only cover basic living costs at best.
Grow our Valley want to be the wind under the wings of change and by
providing 'start up kits' for entrepreneurial women coupled with skills
training, workshops and ongoing mentoring we feel excited that these
women and their businesses will fly! Your support, interest and
donations will be very gratefully received and every penny goes towards
manifesting these ideas!
