OUR PROGRAMMES

The four programmes have been structured to support Early Childhood Development (ECD) including those children living with disabilities, improving the mobility for children living with disabilities, environment awareness, or support of your existing outreach initiative.  The programmes create awareness to the challenge faced by people with disabilities, environment awareness and show how recycling of clothes can create jobs for the unemployed (including people living with disabilities), create micro-business, and raise funds to do good.

Clothes to Play, has been launched to raise funds to support Early Childhood Development (ECD) at day care centres. The ECD Day Care mothers training, toolkits and other complimentary programmes will be provided through Life Link 24/7 Cares NPO. These ECD kits will help serve all children, including those living with disabilities.

The Shonaquip has partnered with ‘Clothes to Good’ in a ‘Clothes to Wheels’ programme. By choosing this programme, your organisation will recycle clothing to subsidise wheelchairs for people with disabilities, create jobs and micro-businesses for including people with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities.

One of the ways this partnership helps others, is to provide jobs for people with disabilities at the recycling centre. In the future we would like to have a least 50% of the operated by persons with disabilities.

This is a successful and effective programme that greens, educates, offsets carbon emissions and transforms schools and other community centres, into healthier, more sustainable environments.
Food & Trees For Africa (FTFA) receives applications for trees from disadvantaged community groups (including many schools) in barren, dusty townships across South Africa and provides trees for as many as possible with assistance from funders Trees are ordered from the nearest tree grower (emerging nurseries where possible) for local economic development and are delivered with branded instructions on how to plant and maintain them.

Tree planting events (which can also be branded and attended by the funders for publicity) are often held to highlight the benefits of greening and climate change action and spread awareness and education. This programme offers opportunities for voluntary offsets. Companies can join communities to plant trees as team building initiatives.

Millions of trees have been distributed in this way since 1990 but there are calls for many more. FTFA works with companies and organisations like Clothes to Cash Exchange (C2CX) to develop innovative projects to fund trees. By choosing the Clothes to Trees programme, your school or staff can have trees planted in your community, instead of taking the cash, and even plant them yourselves!  FTFA Trees for All programme video

This option allows you to receive cash per kilogram of usable clothes collected! You can use this cash to create a social fund for your outreach programme, partner with a less privileged school to improve their facilities, improve your own facilities  or donate the cash to one of our partner NPO’s such as Life Link 24/7 Cares. Your organisation can decide to use the money for what it needs; we are here to help you fundraise for that purpose!
