Groenfontein Toy Project

 

The project started in July 2011 in remote rural farming community, in a region known as the Small Karoo in South Africa.The project is a employment and skills development initiative for the women of this beautiful, yet economically impoverished, area.
The women have a dedicated workshop, where training and production takes place in a convivial and supportive environment.
Apart from acquiring a new skill, most of a project members have progressed to the point where they can produce a highly sellable product in the competitive open market. The result is not only full time employment and a steady income for the women, but overall emotional ans social empowerment.
