‘Where doing good never goes out of fashion’ – tfgP is a unique civil society project aimed at supplying the retail industry with quality staff.
The Feel Good Project - Vision & Objectives
The aim of the project is to fight poverty by training unemployed people in skills relevant to the retail supply chain.
tfgP trainees are chosen from students who have completed one or more of LtE's market related skills development training courses for further training in the retail, supply and warehousing sectors. All revenue generated from sales in the store is allocated back to the project.
LtE as an organisation, and thus all related projects, seek to develop people, especially unemployed people, socially, economically, emotionally and spiritually. Its vision is 'to eradicate unemployment and other legacies of injustice in South Africa and Africa'.
The many faces of poverty (both monetary and non-monetary) are addressed directly at LtE through the various skills that are taught as part of our courses (market related skills, life skills and business skills) to those that attend the courses at LtE.
LtE graduates are put forward for contract employment through tfg for further on-the-job skills training. Trainees are paid a minimum training wage after signing an 8 month contract. The goal is that by the end of the training programme the trainee would walk into an entry level position in a retail store, warehouse etc.
