Kranshoek Community Development Centre, Plettenberg Bay

Kranshoek Community Development Centre is busy with a number of initiatives, including a vegetable garden and nursery, a youth band which is also linked to life skills learning, and an upholstery workshop for local entrepreneurs. And on the other side of Kranshoek, we popped in to visit with the team at the House of Hope – a local soup kitchen.

Kranshoek's House of Hope

The Footsteps Foundation is working closely with the current and future small business owners of Kranshoek, to create a sense of self-sustainability, pride and growth within the Griqua community.

During their workshops, they are listening to people’s dreams for the future and helping them to turn these into viable, sustainable, and profitable businesses.  A great sense of excitement is created as they are connecting businesses with the market possibilities out there, following a step by step process of empowerment and ownership – not only of their business ideas but also of their environment and their broader responsibility of their young people futures.

Plettenberg Bay is known for its stunning beaches and glitzy holiday homes, but we found a gem of a different kind in Kranshoek on Plett’s Robberg Peninsula. This was a re-visit for The EXPEDITION Project and Phillip navigated the team around to the ongoing projects of Kranshoek.

We were met with a warm welcome at the children’s library, which was filled with books for all ages and in a variety of languages. The librarian mentioned that the outside of the building is sometimes vandalised with graffiti so we brainstormed an idea we picked up from the Valleys and Mountains Development Foundation in Bonnievale where colourful murals have been painted on large wall spaces throughout the town. Maybe this is something that the TEP team could help with on a re-visit. Watch this space!
