The Wheelbarrow Project
When companies and NGOs collaborate, we can make a
significant difference in our local communities
Wheeling a month’s supply of food to thousands of households and creating jobs
To date, the Wheelbarrow Project provided food parcels to more than 30,000 households in desperate need of food, valued in excess of R33 million.
The idea of delivering the food parcels was born out of the need to distribute food aid while still observing the social distancing needed to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Households do not have to queue for their food parcel, instead wheelbarrow agents from the community deliver the parcels straight to the households - earning R20 per delivery. The Kazang spaza shops act as pay-out points to the wheelbarrow agents who don't have to go to the bank or ATM.
The Mahlasedi Foundation and Kazang would like to invite South Africans to contribute to the ‘donate a wheelbarrow drive', by making a cash contribution for the purchase of wheelbarrows to expand this outreach to other communities in need.
Kazang donated 35 wheelbarrows for the Cosmo City outreach. If you or your company want to make a difference in our communities, we challenge you to match our donation. Thanks to Buildit we can obtain wheelbarrows at R300 each.
Make a donation, to make a difference. Please use “care + your cell number” as payment reference. All donations are welcome, big or small!
