Achievements & Some Success Stories

We have been through the grind of very tough lessons in development here in Africa. Uthango continues to achieve measurable success in spite of - or because of (!!) - difficult times. Development apathy, donor fatigue, the global economic crisis and above all, lack of political leadership impact directly on our vision. A shared passion for innovation and development motivates the team and we developed some key assets to overcome barriers. Our Directors venture beyond traditional approaches to implement new models of social investment and social enterprises. Consider reading our company profile under ABOUT US for more on our track-record.

Most of our success stories break new ground in development practices to ensure benefits in communities. We treasure our relationships with individual beneficiaries. People matter most in our company and in our projects. The stories of their lives, and their successes, we acknowledge and celebrate, as these have inspired us...

The potters break their own records with many hands!

Linda Robyn and Thembisa Mzewu have completed all of their international orders for The Body Shop on time for more than three years! The final order was ready for shipment two months before delivery deadlines and passed a full quality check. The ceramic entrepreneurs and their teams have excelled in production and could meet their business goals to build stock and pay all suppliers.

Many lessons were learned during the business process.

Well done! The entrepreneurs also wish to thank other members from the UTHANGO Association who jumped in to assist with packing on the final day of shipment...
