Intshona Women’s Trusts
The Intshona Women’s Trust is a broad based women own empowerment vehicle, which focuses on enterprise development and education. As the beneficiaries of the Intshona Women’s Trust, these rural women are not only shareholders, but are enabled through these initiatives and learning processes.
Intshona Community Trusts
The Community Trust was established so that workers were given opportunities through job creation, shareholding and training. This gave birth to enterprise development within the communities, where the manufacturing ventures operate.
