The cleaning company that made dreams come true

In 2014, an opportunity came along to pitch on the cleaning contract for Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital and Western Cape Rehabilitation Centre in Mitchells Plain.

We thought: who better to manage this contract than the team of dedicated women who have been working there for more than 20 years?

“Vuya not only gave these women jobs but also hope of a better future. It has been a dream come true for me to become a business owner.”
