Africa is a continent full of strong and resilient women. Women who choose to fight every day despite their circumstances, they get up and they find a way to work in order to put food on the table, for not only their children but their grandchildren as well. Three of these women Ali, Busi and Johanna are street vendors who formed businesses out of unemployment and a need for income.
Their stories inspired the creative collective Being Frank started by Jo Theron, Shannon Davis and Kirsten Townsend, to start Pimp My Street Kitchen, this project is aimed at helping these ladies grow their businesses.
This Project is broken into two parts:
Part one is to supply them with newly rebranded health and safety compliant, trailers through crowdfunding.
Part two is to up-skill these women through mentorships, guidance and training, in hopes to turn them into fully fledged small businesses that turn a profit.
If you would like to donate to this worthy cause or find out more about how to share your skills or adopt one of these women go to the Pimp My Street Kitchen page on Indigogo or email Being Frank at firstname.lastname@example.org
