Investing in small businesses throughout the country is one of many meaningful initiatives that is being implemented by the Team from the Hollywood Foundation. On 11 March 2022, the Team from Cape Town in the Western Cape was proud to invest in a company known as Zinomkitha Clothing Design. The company has been operating for nine years, and its goals are to open many branches across the country and assist with reducing the levels of unemployment. The business specialises in school uniforms.
In 2020, the business expanded their services by offering sewing lessons to the community to upskill people after many had lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite its positive attitude and willingness to impact the youth in our country, it has faced many financial challenges. The Team was proud to ease the pressure off the owner, Zimkita Hene, through the contribution of much-needed equipment and items, such as a domestic embroidery machine, a printer, and fabrics. Zimkita was overjoyed after receiving the items, and said that it will help the company to grow and expand.
