“I have a dream to make clothes and I believe that this is the start of my dream. I am making handmade scrunchies in order to build a future for my kids and support my family. Through my work, I would like to empower the people around me in my community.”
Creating empowerment & upliftment across SA & DR Congo.
Asandé is derived from the word ‘Azande’ which has the Zulu meaning; ‘let there be more’ and the Congolese meaning; ‘a people who possess much land’. Both meanings are about providing more for the people of the DRC & South Africa. Enlarging the lives of both these nation’s people is exactly what we want to do!
Through every purchase you’re providing holistic care, skills training & seed funding for refugees, women living in local informal settlements & really anyone who needs it!
We work with women of great talent who need some sort of assistance to help them get their business off the ground. Sometimes this looks like providing a space to work, seed-funding, up-skilling opportunities or personal assistance in some form.
