Who are we?
The Good Shop is a charitable enterprise operating with a triple-mission finality : Education, Employment and Environment. Our aim is to enhance the quality of life of disadvantaged communities by providing direct funding of scholarships through our sales, create and sustain empowered employment for people with work entry barriers, while impacting the environment positively by extending the life of goods.
Our business model relies on the circular economy. Donations from individuals and corporations are sorted and then, either sold directly or repaired and renewed in-house into new items. By doing so, we enable the learning of new skills for our employees, encourage circular initiatives, collaborate to create new products and we become zero-waste.
Our activity allows us to support NGOs by donating items that have been already sorted on a weekly basis and inviting their beneficiaries for a free dignified shopping experience. We have become a logistics and converging platform to many NGOs.

Why are we starting this campaign?
The Good Shop Repair Renew Recycle is an initiative we created so as to turn waste into locally-made products that create employment and training. We seek to empower all stakeholders to extend the lifetime of their items and think beyond waste.
The Good Shop Repair currently needs volunteers to help with the sorting out of textile waste in its workshop. The aim is to sort out the textile piles into different categories, which will then be used for different projects.
For this particular task, we are in need of volunteers who are autonomous and have previous knowledge on textile and renew/recycling aspects.
We are ideally searching for volunteers to help over a long period of time starting as from the 2nd of October. The schedule would be once per week from 9AM till 5PM at The Curepipe Repair/Renew Workshop, on either Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.
