Project Gateway heritage event

PROJECT Gateway will be running a Heritage Month event this September through a flea market whereby the entrepreneurs of the school as well as external entrepreneurs will have their goods on display and for sale.

From an apartheid prison used to break the spirits of those who fought against the oppressive regime to a church based, non-profit organisation serving the city of Pietermaritzburg and surrounding areas, Project Gateway has seen a remarkable change.

Previously entrapping famous political stalwarts such as Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi when it was a prison, Project Gateway now seeks to equip and empower the local people of Pietermaritzburg through enterprise, education and care activities.

CATEGORIES, NAMELY:

• Care;

The organisation offers overnight shelter as well as meals on a daily basis, consists of a private school as well as a fashion school which seeks to get underprivileged pupils involved in the fashion industry among some of the initiatives Project Gateway is involved in.
