Let’s paint the village-initiative

The Trust received 220 20 liter-drums from Stonecor and plan to engage the men of the village to start small paint businesses to paint the village and in doing so establish themselves as painters and initiate economic growth in the area/village. This will form part of the initiative to restore dignity in the community but not on a hand-out basis but rather through teaching the people to become economically active and earn income for their families.

We will keep you posted on the developments but can say at this stage that we have already had one business, Galvatech, sponsoring a portion of the paint to be used to grow the paint businesses. We use the proceeds from this initiative to also fund the education program apart from only impacting the economic activity in the area.
