Empower Mothers in township communities within the Helderberg Basin to fulfill their intrinsic value as providers and care givers to their children.
heART AT WORK® will passionately strive to ensure that economically marginalised mothers from previously disadvantaged communities within the Helderberg Basin, become the custodian of skills, empowering them to earn a sustainable income. This will enable them to provide for the basic and educational needs of their children, while being a present parent and effective role model. heART AT WORK® will provide craft training, micro-business management skills and foster economic opportunities in order to create a platform for a sustainable income, improving the quality of life for both mother and child
