Income Generation Projects (IGP)
Although Hlokomela is largely dependent on donor funding, the organisation is constantly striving towards self-sustainability by means of its Income Generation Projects.
The Herb Garden grows and sells fresh herbs and herb products commercially and is complemented by the Community Garden which grows fruits and vegetables.
The Charity Shop sells second hand clothing and shares floor space with The Hlokomela Sewing Project. With the help of volunteers, Kombucha (a fermented tea drink) is also brewed and sold to Charity Shop customers.
A newly established MiniChess franchise offers crucial early childhood development skills and education to young children. Hlokomela believes that well developed cognitive skills and reasoning abilities within our clients/patients are a wonderful asset in reaching targets and successfully internalising health awareness campaigns.
The Hlokomela Tours are social interest excursions to the organisation’s main points of interest, showcasing the organisation’s selling points. These tours have the potential to become a major source of income, through funding opportunities and donations, but also serve as a great one on one marketing tool with international guests from a range of global industries and sectors.
