helping people to help themselves

freshStart Sedgefield is a not for profit organisation, that aims to create new possibilities, on the Garden Route, South Africa, by helping children to help themselves and break the cycle of poverty, hopelessness and helplessness. This is primarily done through projects involving the recycling and/or upcycling of waste material.

The Smutsville Recycle SwopShop is the first freshStart Sedgefield empowerment project. It is based on the successful model of Swop Shops started in Hermanus in 2003. The Smutsville Recycle SwopShop now has over 600 children registered as collectors… with children learning practically to help lift themselves out of the poverty cycle.

The challenge is to create a new generation of youth who are self-sufficient and are equipped to make a fresh start.
