Job creation
Creating financial sustainability for Anchor of Hope
Training and skills development

Currently Anchor of Rest employs 11 people in the making of couches and the upholstery of bus seats. We are currently making 120 couches – 1 and 2 seaters and corner couches per month. The employment figure is determined upon the amount of orders. We have recently added a new range to our couches, automans and tables to widen our product range.

The profit on these couches is ploughed back into providing bursaries for 1st year students and also for the financial sustainability of the organisation. Creating a financial stable environment for Anchor of Hope is very important to continue making a difference and impact on the economy, community and needs of people. By not be dependable upon donors and making the shift from unsustainable to a sustainable organisation makes the possibility of growth and impact for Anchor a reality. We also sub contract work out to other NPO’s such as the scatter pillows on the couches.
