Cafda & Stables Craft and Culture Centre
The Cape Flats Development Association (Cafda) is a non-profit child and family-oriented organisation that provides numerous services to disadvantaged communities living on the Cape Flats.The association offers counselling and advice on drug abuse, HIV/AIDS, child protection and employee assistance services and foster care. Its focus is on the family unit and creating educational and social opportunities to help individuals improve their circumstances.
The Stables Craft and Culture Centre is a development, job creation and income-generating project on Prince George Drive, en route to tourist attractions along the False Bay Coast and Cape Point. The property abuts the western boundary of the Rondevlei Nature Reserve and the proposed False Bay Coastal Park.
The centre is developing a craft and culture centre that provides skills training for the unemployed and disadvantaged living in local communities. Allied to this is provision of a suitable venue where crafts may be traded. A tearoom serving tea, coffee and traditional Cape Flats delicacies is also envisioned to provide an outlet for produce from the Cafda baking project.
Training programmes, conducted by trainers from the community, focus on entrepreneurial and life skills and various crafts, including aftercare, cane weaving, computer training, cooking and baking, cosmetics training, hairdressing, dancing, stroke rehabilitation, sewing and organic food gardening. The goal is to empower trainees so they can start their own businesses once they have completed the programme.
Trainees market and sell their crafts to visitors at the Stables, which is where their business training also comes in handy! Visitors are welcome to view the crafts being manufactured.
Operating hours are Monday to Friday 08h00-16h30. There is no entrance fee, but donations are welcome.
