Labour - The Carpenter’s Shop

On Sakhisizwe today, we spoke to Dee Wills - Director at the Carpenter’s shop. The Carpenter’s Shop is a NGO which provides rehabilitation services for the poor and unemployed people in Cape Town. Homeless people, who have the desire to better their situations, with the skills taught at the Carpenters Shop, are able to help themselves by learning carpentry skills. The Shop also offers professional help from social workers as well as a temporary residence for those people who show progress.  The organisation aims to develop the trainees existing skills as well as teaching them new skills by assisting the trainees in finding their way back into society with regular employment. We spoke about the work done at the carpenters shop. For more information about the Carpenters shop, you can give them a call on (021) 461 5508 or go to
