The Hope Factory


Growing people. Developing Businesses. Impacting Communities


The Hope Factory was founded in 2001 and formalized in 2004 as a registered Non-Profit Company with a Level 1 B-BBEE rating and a registered Public Benefit Organisation.

We deliver Socio-Economic Development (SED) initiatives that result in mobilizing sustainable economic activity by ensuring that individuals have vital and solid foundations to successfully operate their own businesses through our skills development and mentorship programme.

Our 2019 strategic focus will be on intentionally creating impact on targeted township communities and individuals by developing informal traders to become established businesses.

Our Approach:

  • An accredited training programme
  • Group mentoring

Our core focus areas are:

  • Personal (Leadership) Development
