Ikamva Design is a social enterprise that offers hand crafted South African products. We are working together with community crafters to expand their range of designs and providing business opportunities both locally and internationally. Ikamva Design addresses the problem of poverty and social isolation among women in Cape Town’s Township neighbourhoods and many of the women that we are working together with are members of the NGO Ikamva Labantu’s senior clubs, where the members meet every day and work together in safe spaces. Ikamva Design creates job opportunities that generate extra income which makes a real difference to the household. This provides freedom, dignity and independence to families by helping to meet basic needs and a more stable upbringing for children and grandchildren. The profit of Ikamva Design goes directly to Ikamva Labantu.
