ABOUT HEART OF @HOME
Heart of @home is an @home initiative that combines our passion for the home with our commitment to helping build better communities.
“What we heard from our employees was that they have a sense of urgency in wanting to help and respect the hardships that too many of our fellow citizens are facing, and to be involved in practical ways to help improve their circumstances.”
- Chris Swart, Head of @home
We have successfully partnered with Habitat for Humanity South Africa to assist with building homes for those in need.
The @home team has been involved in building homes in Cape Town in 2017 and Johannesburg and Durban in 2018 in partnership with Habitat for Humanity South Africa.
Other initiatives supported by Heart of @home since launching included extensive support of the Knysna fire relief efforts, as well the skills development project, Hands of Hope in Cape Town, which supports female former inmates on parole with skills development and employment opportunities. The handmade picnic cooler bags made by these women were sold at @home stores.
