Artisan: Project Gateway

Artisan Project Gateway

Housed in the old Pietermaritzburg prison in the Kwazulu Natal region of South Africa, Project Gateway is providing hope and economic opportunity where it didn't previously exist. In recognition of the fact that the development of the small business sector is vital to the growth of the South African economy, and to the process of releasing South African people from dependency and the cycle of poverty, Project Gateway also offers mentorship, support and training to producers whose products are not yet ready for the market.

Local people who have previously earned little or no income are offered the opportunity to develop and sell their products through our wholesale and retail facilities. The project's ultimate goal is to raise well-equipped entrepreneurs to run their own sustainable, profit making businesses. The impact of helping one producer in the community earn an income indirectly impacts ten adults and children around them.

Project Gateway's aid touches many, including women crafters in Soweto (an acronym for Southwest Townships). Globally notorious for being poor and dangerous, Soweto still struggles to create economic opportunities for their most needy residents even a decade after apartheid ended. Project Gateway has helped one group of women in Soweto find a market for their beautiful organza blossom brooches. Investment and opportunity can change lives in Soweto, and Project Gateway's beautiful blossom brooches remind us that flowers can bloom anywhere they are nurtured.
