A new charity is in town, in Cape Town and its name is Caps for care. Caps for care is a social enterprise that sells “care products” across the globe and half of their profit goes to orphanage’s and to children that are not as privileged as others. Cassandra Owei, the co-founder of Caps for care told us that “we always loved kids, but we didn’t know what to do with this passion. Are school exposed is to different type of community services. But we wanted to get more involved in our community and we wanted to start a social enterprise, so we decided to put those things together.”

Many children in South Africa are under-privileged and many don’t have the supplies to help them achieve their dreams, but the main goal for caps for care is to give children the tools that they need to accomplish their dreams, Daisy Owei says” we can give them singing lessons if they have a dream to sing, we can give them sports supplies if they have a dream to play particular sport etc”

“Sisipho is ten years old and she wants to be a doctor when she grows up, she likes to sing & dance. We have given her materials to help her grow and develop her talents. We want to let her know that they can achieve anything with right mindset”

The charity sells care products, they are going to sell beanies, shirts and hoodies but they are currently selling caps. They called these care products, the caps come in five different colours, these are: maroon, dark blue, olive green, black and white. The shirts are going to be black and white to start off with and they are all going to have unique designs to display how unique each child is. So far in four weeks they were able to sell over a hundred caps. however they are still designing their shirts and beanies.

Their goal is to create a global franchise, they want to help under-privileged children around the world and they want eventually sell bags and phone pouches. They also want to open a stand inside a mall to increase the number of customers.

Caps for care want to give every child a future, you can help by going to
