What We Do

Harambee helps the hardest to reach members in our society start a business or provide a service. We guide our clients from initial idea through too commencing a full business or service providing operations. Our main focus is the empowerment of our clients. 

Harambee offer opportunities to fulfil their potential. Enabling our clients the opportunity to contribute meaningfully and to take positive step towards social acceptance. We are different because we empower our candidates from the very beginning to believe they have and always will have the power to shape their own future. We give a supported end-to-end approach, a holistic service that will support people on their journey into employment and beyond. 

Some clients may just need a little assistance. For example they may require funds for an electrical, plumbing, painting or hairdressing etc, course. Once a course has been completed (with an external agency) we will then help the client to set up their business or service they’ve trained in. We will continue to guide and give advice and any help required so they can further empower themselves. 

The ethos of Harambee is simplistic yet realistic. Our intention is to provide practical solutions to assist those labeled disadvantaged by helping them into employment using their own identified entrepreneurial traits. We all need chances and opportunities. So please use your CSR funds and make a donation. You have the power to change someone’s life, today.

How it works

Harambee will take a 50% equity stake in all new business. Once the client(s) has repaid any monies loaned they will then own 100% of their business. If a client requires funds for a training course, we will directly payoff the course to enable the client to complete the course. Once the course if completed and the client enters employment (we will also help with this) the client will repay back monies so, Harambee can continue to flourish and the client has repaid the faith we have placed in them.

Our intake of clients come via, Self Referral, the Employment Services, Probation Agencies, Social Service Departments, Prisons, to Churches. Basically, any organisations connected with those deemed or labelled as disadvantaged. 

So it is in the interest of Harambee to identify committed candidates with realistic ventures and, for our client(s) to demonstrate a willingness to be their own boss or gain relevant qualifications so they are able to take greater control of their lives.
