About masicorpblog

MASICORP provides funding for education, and investment in enterprise so that the people of Masiphumelele - a township near Cape Town in South Africa - can escape from poverty. Mission MASICORP has over 12 years’ experience working in the township. Our approach has been to ask the community where and how they need support and, from this, we know the residents want a hand-up not a handout. We know that they see education as the route out of poverty. We know they will work hard to achieve success – and we see their hard work every day in our education projects and programs. Education is what we do: we built a library and education resource centre where over 20 programs are available free to residents; we have an important project to help improve education in the 30+ township crèches; we have a highly successful university bursary program and we work with and in the township’s primary and high schools. Our education programs extend to business enterprise, where we train and develop budding entrepreneurs, and provide training to help people find jobs. Description In Masiphumelele most people live in shacks. Six families or more share one water tap and toilet facility. Roughly 70% have no regular work.Even for those with work, incomes are very low and many manage on less than $2/day for food. The township suffers from poverty-related health issues: more than 20 % of residents are HIV/AIDS positive and the number of tuberculosis victims has increased in recent years. Life expectancy is under 50 years. Some might say there is little hope but, fortunately, these people have plenty of spirit, dignity and determination.

  1. I was very excited when I read this article, about your knew artisan bakery and cafe, also alongside the sewing cafe, I live in scotlland and have been trying to think, of a way to start up a small sewing ,and craft cafe, alongside a small artisan type bakery making our taditonal Scottish clootie Dumplings that were very popular, in Scotland at Christmas and Birthdays, they are made in a large cotton cloth (called a cloot) and the Dumpling is cooked inside the cloth/cloot, in a very large pan, with an upturned plate in the bottom, filled with boiling water, and cooked for 2.5/3hrs. I have already been asked by alocal shop to supply them with this tradditional Dumpling, but need to find out, about the health and hygeine side of things,:- if they can be made from a domestic Kitchen. So wish me luck, and hope you do well with your new enterprise. I wish you all the best. Georgia Clinton. Glasgow Scotland
