The SLC4X and MonkeyBiz Garden Village Initiative
African beading has been identified as an important skill which can successfully be employed as a source of income. Skilled bead artists sell their work at a market day once a month. Due to the success of this venture, Monkeybiz South Africa, is happy to collaborate with SLC4X to expand the project to empower the people of the Garden Village to become entrepreneurs.
What the project entails
In order to create a new opportunity for future entrepreneurs the skill of African Beading can be transferred to new beaders. Workshops, presented by skilled beaders and entrepreneurs of Monkeybiz, will be arranged to transfer this skill to 10 people at a time. Ideally we want to include a wide selection of people from the village, even extending the invitation to pupils from a nearby school.

What will it cost?
The cost per workshop will be R3000 which will include the fee for 2 trainers, all training material and food for our attendees; that is ONLY R300 to train one person to become financially independent in their community.
How can I get involved?
In order to make this project work, we need a sponsorship per attendee. The more sponsors we get, the more community members can be trained to become entrepreneurs that sell their own unique artwork.
