The last few years have been hard for our family. We have found ourselved on very hard times. But through Asandé we’ve been able to create our own micro-enterprise and slowly we’re rebuilding our lives through business.
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.
Generally 2 to 4 working days (excluding delivery) but if the item is out of stock, it will be made to order which will take around 7 to 10 working days (excluding delivery).
