Laundry Services

A fully operational laundry was established in the year 2000 as part of the work & employment programme. It was started as a small laundry to accommodate persons with physical and intellectual disabilities, providing them with the opportunity to engage in a working environment, while at the same time supplementing their income. Since the start of the laundry, it has shown tremendous growth with the most significant extension of the facility in 2004 with the financial support from the National Lottery and Anglo American Chairman’s Fund. During the past 16 years, the laundry developed into a fully functional business enterprise.

Currently, 33 persons with various disabilities receives a monthly profit share from services rendered in the laundry. Manual and industrial ironing, washing and drying services are rendered to the public as well as on contract.
