On this week’s New Beginnings, we highlight a group that is all about helping others to make a fresh start. They help entrepreneurs to realize their real potential, especially in the realm of social improvement projects.
CapeTalk's Pippa Hudson spoke to founders of the group called Transception, Justin Zietsman and Ashley Stemmet.
It all started two and a half months ago and together we felt we could bring solutions to social problems— Ashley Stemmet
The group runs several projects in communities:
Khusela ikhaya Project
Based on raging shack fires that consume countless homes and destroy precious lives in the Cape, the group established Khusela paint. The paint, when exposed to extreme heat, forms an expanding heat shield capable of sufficiently slowing down the rapid transmission of fire from one dwelling to the next, in order to allow neighbouring occupants more time to escape. ‘Khusela’ is Xhosa word meaning ‘protect’.
Mandela Day The Khusela ikhaya Project is a Transception (Pty)Ltd social responsibility initiative. On the 18th of July, Transception will be spending its 67 minutes executing their pilot project by painting homes in Nomzamo, a township between the Strand and Somerset West.
