Tweak Entrepreneur Program & Mumpy Project.

About

ENTREPRENEUR PROGRAM

Tweak Fashion collects all second hand clothing, and fabric remnants that people were going to throw away, and in support of sustainable fashion and creation of entrepreneurs, creates brand new items under the Tweak Fashion Label.


At Tweak Fashion, we use the 'previously loved' items, to create opportunity for women to work and create and become empowered. We teach and train ladies who are looking to be entrepreneurs, due to unemployment and lack of job opportunity.


We are training ladies about fabrics, sorting, washing, folding, packing, in preparation for the creating process. And how to be a part of creating a new South African fashion label. using their creativity and skills, they are designing, making patterns, cutting patterns, and sewing products as part of the manufacturing process.


We opened the doors to our premises in Modderfontein in Johannesburg on the 2nd June, and we started with five ladies, and we urgently need funding to support our program.


Please help us to support our team of ladies. Sisters Rosa and Jenny have been unemployed for a few years, and they have been working enthusiastically in the sorting room and laundry. Helen, single Mom, and previous fashion designer, young designer entrepreneur Grace, and sewist Chantal also a Single Mom.


In their first week they have been creating purses, Tote bags and Scrunchies. Our view is to create many more products, so that we can in turn help to empower many more ladies.


MUMPY PROJECT


The 'Mumpy Project' is very close to the hearts of all of our Directors. Not only do we all have the heart to help empower women in South Africa, but the 'Mumpy Project' is also a personal dream. Our Executive Director Justine Engelbrecht's sister Penny, passed away 19.02.2018, after having had a heart Transplant seven weeks prior. Her body never accepted her new heart. Justine's Mother, Stella, who passed away this year 02.04.2021, always had a heart to help children. When Penny was young she created a Toy called 'Mumpy' ( Mum & Penny). It is Justine and her families dream to create 'Mumpy' and make him out of repurposed clothing in the Tweak Fashion Sewing room, with a view to making 'Mumpy' for Orphan, Trauma and Heart Patient Children in South Africa.


In addition they are hoping to establish another Sewing room in the KwaMhlangu Community.


Please help us to continue to empower ladies at Tweak Fashion, create sustainable fashion, provide training, and to create 'Mumpy's' for children.


We have started with humble beginnings but need your Help and Support to achieve Big Dreams.
