It's not often that you hear positive comments on conference bags, but many of this week's delegates have provided positive feedback on MEI's colourful bags. We are particularly pleased about this as the bags are hand-made in Cape Town's sprawling Khayelitsha township by Learn to Earn, as part of their Feel Good Project, which is dedicated to creating opportunities for employment and alleviating poverty in South Africa. Together with TFG (The Foschini Group), Learn to Earn provides unemployed individuals with the skills required for the retail sector so that they may enter and sustain careers in this fast-paced industry.
It is also nice to have positive feedback on the conference lanyards, made by Kidzpositive, a non profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of children and families affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic diseases.
