The clothing collection is a NPO that is involved with the collection and distribution of second- hand clothing.
Clothing is deposited into collective containers which are strategically placed around Johannesburg. Once the clothing is deposited, the clothing collective, in partnership with The Clothing Bank, distributes this clothing to a team of unemployed mothers from South Africa’s informal sector.
These mothers then resell this clothing in order to start their own businesses. The mothers are provided with guidance and training along their journey.
The clothing collective provides a way for second – hand clothing, an unutilized resource, to be out to work, providing sustainable income for impoverished communities.
