HELP US

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

We are The JBay Recycling Project and we’ve been turning trash in to treasure for 10 years. Our concept is simple: encourage children to keep their streets clean and reward them with things they really need.

 

The Project is exclusively for children and is run predominantly with the help of volunteers. We do hire a handful of casual laborers to assist us on site, thereby also giving back to the community within which we operate.

 

Our three main objectives are to clean up the environment, help alleviate poverty and to educate as well as nurture. We are aware of the impact we have and that is one of the reasons we simply can’t stop.

 

If what we do resonates with you please consider getting involved, we operate every Monday during school terms from 12pm until 4pm. Your financial contributions are also vital to our continuation as many of the products in our shop are purchased when donations are not available.

Safe Zone for Kids

GOAL : 15000 R

RAISED : 0 R

Beyond the perimeter of our property we can not control things such as bullying or peer pressure, therefor we desperately need to create a small safe zone where children can sit in a sheltered environment and eat their food parcels, or even simply wait somewhere safe for their friends to finish shopping.
