Dream Team Cleaning Company
One of the Vuya Foundation’s greatest achievements in this past year has been the launch of its very own cleaning company! At the end of 2014, the cleaning contracts for Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital and Western Cape Rehabilitation Center in Michells Plain had come to an end.
Seizing this opportunity, the Vuya Foundation worked tirelessly to get a replacement startup cleaning company running.After much hard work, the Dream Team Cleaning Company was created and this company now operates at these sites.
The company provides work for over 100 staff, mostly ladies from the surrounding communities of Michells Plain, Delft, Khayelitsha and Gugulethu.
Added to this, Dream Team is managed and partly owned by a number of women who had worked as cleaners for the previous company for over 20 years! Their technical expertise simply could not be ignored and in this way, true empowerment of women in business is being achieved.
As a social enterprise the Vuya Foundation is truly harnessing an entrepreneurial spirit to achieve social goals. Surplus that is created by the Dream Team is reinvested into the Vuya Foundation’s projects.
We believe that the meshing of business strategies with social objectives is the best way to approach modern social challenges in South Africa. And this is what sets us apart from non-profit organizations.

At Vuya Foundation our core business is social interventions with a focus on sustainable development.
The Foundation was born out the realization that any South Africans still face untold hardships, a lack of education and scarcity of both opportunities and mentorship.
To truly address this issue, a new way of hinking and doing is needed.
