Men on the Side of the Road – t/a FUNDI.
FUNDI is a non-profit organisation that registers, verifies and evaluates mainly “informal” skilled labour such as painters, plumbers, gardeners, domestic workers, etc. and empowers these South Africans to change their lives through job creation. Homeowners and businesses alike can contact FUNDI to source a wide variety of skilled and semi-skilled workers on a daily, weekly or project basis. We’ve found that generally people who hire FUNDI members become loyal ‘customers’, but the main challenge is getting people to hire their members in the first place.
Many South Africans are nervous to employ people they don’t know, which FUNDI understand considering the high crime levels we are all affected by. However, FUNDI members are not unknowns. They are men and women well known to them who have a proven track record of being reliable and trustworthy.
Every income earning South African can make a difference in the life of the unemployed, whether by offering them employment, or by donating to FUNDI who will in turn employ the people to work on community projects, such as “Adopt a Pavement”
