Workshop

KHC headquarters is situated in the heart of Tseiblaagte, the poorest suburb of Keetmanshoop, in order to be easily accessible to the beneficiaries. KHC occupies a municipal building called Wake Centre for which it has received a long-term lease. The renovation of the building, which was originally used as a pub, was funded by the Government of the Czech Republic.

Apart from the office space, KHC employees utilize two workshops, a printing room, a store room for material and a store room for finished products.

History

In 2004, People in Need, a non-profit organization from the Czech Republic, founded a sheltered craft workshop in Keetmanshoop with the aim to reduce the social and economic consequences of HIV/AIDS and TB in southern Namibia. The project was supported by the Government of the Czech Republic between 2004 and 2009. In May 2009 Karas Huisen Crafts was established as an independent Namibian charitable trust which took over the operations of the craft workshop to ensure its long-term sustainable functioning under the Namibian governance after the withdrawal of People in Need from Namibia in September 2010.

Our Vision

Hui-sen means “help yourself” in the Nama language. Karas Huisen Crafts’ vision is to create an enabling environment for social and economic empowerment and upliftment of disadvantaged Namibian people; especially women.

Our Mission

Karas Huisen Crafts aims to provide vulnerable Namibian people with skills and opportunities to help themselves. KHC is determined to assist namely those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and TB with income generating opportunities that would enable them to provide for themselves and their families.

Our Strategy

Karas Huisen Crafts’ strategy embraces the development of income generating activities focused mainly on crafts and needlework as well as a learning process providing the beneficiaries with opportunities to master general work responsibilities. KHC endeavors to provide its employees with training and the chance to use their talents and acquired skills to generate basic income from making and selling craft items to the public in Namibia and overseas.

Beneficiaries

Karas Huisen Crafts provides the most vulnerable people from Tseiblaagte, the poorest suburb of Keetmanshoop, with an opportunity to learn basic working habits, to develop their professional skills and to strengthen and build their self-esteem. The sheltered workshop operated by KHC currently provides jobs for about 50 people, out of which an absolute majority are women. The KHC employees, often single mothers and foster parents, are usually the main breadwinners in their households. Considering the family members of the KHC staff, dependent on the income from the workshop, in total about 300 beneficiaries directly benefit from the project. The average salary of a workshop employee is about 700 NAD (100 USD) per month.
The KHC workshop provides job opportunities primarily for people suffering from HIV/AIDS and TB or other chronic diseases, however KHC also offers jobs to other people in need from households affected by HIV/AIDS or suffering from profound poverty.
Over the years, the project strategy focusing on economic empowerment of disadvantaged community members has proved a significant impact on people’s lives, especially in terms of building their self-confidence, self-discipline, relevant financial planning and providing a longterm vision to families of the KHC staff and especially their children (an access to secondary and tertiary education etc.). Unskilled laborers without any long-term experience with formal employment have become craft professionals typically working for the project already for more then 5 years. About one third of the people who worked for the project over the years later found employment in the formal labor market.
KHC is proud to be a mother-friendly employer, encouraging mothers to bring their children to the workshop.
