HUMAN DIGNITY is a basic human right!
This project centres around SALT assisting women in our surrounding community with certain legalities such as identity documents, grant applications and birth certificates for their children. Women are counselled according to their specific need such as unemployment, health and life skill issues.
|ADDRESSING TB/HIV/AIDS AND NUTRITION
FOOD is a basic human right!
We do believe that it’s wiser to give a man a fishing rod and teach him to fish, but we also see a need in the community to first make this man strong enough to hold the fishing rod! In so many cases, the side effects of TB/HIV/AIDS is so severe that people need assistance to become strong enough to attend skills training etc.
BASIC SHELTER AND SOCIAL SERVICES is a basic human right!
SALT forms part of the Table View/Blouberg area Disaster Management program as a distribution centre for blankets, clothing and food. SALT encourages the donation of good condition second-hand clothing and blankets to be distributed during winter floods and fire.
|EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT
EDUCATION is a basic human right!

|INCOME GENERATION AND MICROLENDING
Micro-lending is a tool which allows individuals, who do not have access to traditional loans, to have access to small loans. These loans can meet various needs: starting a business, extending a business, funding for tertiary education, etc.
