PROJECT: National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) Craft Centres
CLIENT: National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF)
VALUE: R3.3 Million
DURATION: January 2015 – December 2015
Class Act Educational Services, together with the Breadsticks Foundation, established two community centres in Limpopo Province with the aim of improving literacy, care and support, and economic opportunities in the surrounding communities.
Class Act is delighted to announce that the NLDTF has awarded the organisation a grant of R3,266,062 in order to establish craft centres at the Class Act Community Centres. The funds will be used to construct and equip crafts centres adjacent to the existing community centres. In addition local community members will be trained and mentored in various craft skills, product development, and marketing and sales of the products.
Class Act Educational Services and the community centres, Aganang Bana Ba Mmaphuti in Waschbank and Ahi Tshameni Swin’we in Xigalo are extremely excited and grateful for the opportunity presented by this grant.
The NLDTF relies on funds from the proceeds of the National Lottery. The Lotteries Act and regulations guide the way in which NLDTF funding may be allocated. The NLDTF wants the grants to make a difference to the lives of all South Africans, especially those more vulnerable, and to improve the sustainability of the beneficiary organisations. Available funds are distributed to registered and qualifying non-profit organisations in the fields of charities; arts, culture and national heritage; and sport and recreation. By placing its emphasis on areas of greatest need and potential, the NLDTF contributes to South Africa’s development.
