  STATUS

     The Sphiwe Sewing Project is a SMME situated in Mamelodi on the Mamelodi Campus
    of the University of Pretoria. By supporting small and medium manufacturing enterprise
    development (SMME’s) projects like this project, the poverty cycle can be broken and
    CE at UP’s contribution to the improvement in quality of life of all South Africans can be
    measured

    These women find themselves in the situation that they need to work to earn an
    income and to take care of their families. Some of these women also have to support
    children who are in school and studying. With little support available compared to their
    needs, these women have to manage with as little as possible and have succeeded in
    establishing a sustainable and self supportive business. They are effective in their
    current business and utilise limited resources very efficiently. They have been trained to
    manufacture clothing and have received previous sponsorships to set up their business.

    Their current need is to expand their business and this is where CE at UP can
    contribute effectively to support this enterprise to develop further. They need 2
    additional industrial sewing machines, 1 industrial overlocker and an industrial
    embroidery machine. They have started to manufacture school blazers and need a
    embroidery machine to embroider the different schools’ emblem on the pockets of the
    blazers.
                                                                                            1
 Cost of these machines: (Quotation obtained from Berzack Brothers (Pty) Ltd and
 Marie’s Sewing Creations)


  1.   2 x Industrial sewing machines: R7 300.00 + VAT = R8 322.00
  2.   1 x Industrial overlocker: R5 595.00 + VAT = R6 378.30
  3.   Industrial embroidery machine: R71 469.20 (Incl. VAT)
  4.   Total investment in Enterprise Development: R86 169.50


 Opportunities for employment are scarce, and by expanding their business they will be
 in a position to employ additional staff members and enhance the quality of life of more
 families in the community. Further education, training and support for these women are
 essential.

 The SMME enables them to change the living conditions of their families, as well as
 developing their social conditions and allows for their children to get further education.

 CE at UP undertakes to support this project by purchasing the machinery Siphwe
 Sewing needs to expand their business as an Enterprise Development initiative.

   Recommendation:
   This cc. is situated in close proximity of a number of schools as well as the University
   Campus in Mamelodi and will utilize any/all funding towards the establishment of a
   proper office facility as well as assets and equipment. Mr. Rantho has renovated an
