Charity strips people of dignity and perpetuates poverty

Instead of charity, we believe in investing our time in individuals who are already making a difference, and just need a little boost to get to the next level.

We discover remarkable people, doing incredible things, against all odds and with scarce resources. When we add knowledge and networks – and the results are extraordinary.

Our growers and makers see the world differently. They are both cool and kind, as they balance purpose and profit creating sustainable social enterprises that create economic opportunities in townships, informal settlements and inner cities.

Look good, feel good, do good.

10 million makers started as 10MillionMasks, a citizen movement to empower and inspire Africans to make masks for themselves and the people they care about. We made and donated over 320 000 masks, and we are tremendously proud of that achievement.

Now, we are 10 million makers, a registered not-for-profit company (registration number: 2020/183391/08) and a public benefit organisation (930066671).
