Building Better Businesses
in South Africa

Who We Are

The Townships Project is a Canadian NGO which promotes the success of viable small-scale businesses in South African township communities, with the aim of economic and social development.

"Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice.  It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.  While poverty persists, there is no true freedom."

 Nelson Mandela
