A sample of the brave and huge-hearted children from Lapeng in Joubert Park, Johannesburg. Lapeng was founded in 1997 as a social safety net initiative with a mission to provide free childcare for the underprivileged. We had the privilege of sponsoring over 100 jackets and uncovering some of the dreams we hope to see become reality. If you’re ever interested in getting involved, we’ll get you in touch.
We’ve all seen the mile-high stack of waste navigating our streets from dawn to dusk. Street Recyclers, Waste Pickers, The Trolley Brigade - they go by many names. We’ve all wondered what their story is. The Rewards Factory recently embarked on a journey of remaining true to our essence of rewarding and recognising the contributions of others. Saluting an unknown community who has elected self-employment through arduous and unsafe working conditions. It’s time we heard their story, their hopes, their dreams.
