Are you looking for a high-impact Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) beneficiary which empowers women, promotes entrepreneurship and is making a meaningful impact on the healthcare status of young women in South Africa?
Look no further than our partners from Blossom Care Solutions who have developed a micro-franchise model which focuses on sanitary pad manufacturing. This model creates between 6 and 8 jobs for young women – primarily through the Youth Employment Service (YES) program.
These young women are trained to run small manufacturing businesses focused on sanitary pad manufacturing.
Corporates can then support these micro-franchises with off-take agreements or orders which ensure that they are sustainable in the long run. These orders can be aggregated across multiple manufacturing sites.
The below video gives you a behind the scenes look at the Blossom Care Solutions site sponsored by Halls.
We have worked with the Blossom team to secure both funding for multiple sites across the country as well as significant off-take agreements.
Supporting Blossom Care Solutions means that you will be able to support the following of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for businesses operating in South Africa:
- SDG3 – Good Health and Wellbeing
- SDG5 – Gender Equality
- SDG8 – Decent work and economic growth
