Empowering Under-Resourced Communities Through Waste Management

At Waste4Change, we are dedicated to empowering members of under-resourced communities who are passionate about waste management. We foster an environment where individuals can discover and implement their own solutions, becoming catalysts for change in their communities and the environment.

We find opportunities where others see none.

The Waste4Change Programme provides a comprehensive curriculum that covers essential skills such as leadership, communication, problem-solving, and innovation. Through interactive methods, participants gain proficiency in these areas while developing a holistic understanding of the sustainable economic impact, particularly in the waste management sector in rural South Africa.

Starting with a 5-Day Bootcamp that introduces entrepreneurial concepts to ignite innovation, we enable participants to start or grow successful and sustainable businesses.
