Thank you for you visiting the CAST online shop. Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty in Africa. By donating and buying our products this helps to generate revenue to help break that cycle. We don’t believe in functioning on donations alone, but believe in empowering the poor to generate their own income and thereby support their communities and employ others. Your support helps us to increase the borders of our influence.

  • During the COVID-19 outbreak, we are dedicating time to distribute food buckets to the needy. These food buckets are really innovative! Once the food has been removed, the buckets can be filled with water, and individuals can wash their hands using the tap that is attached to the bucket.
    We’re really heartened by this initiative and are grateful to have been involved in setting up the CAST website and the online payment system that helps raise money for the distribution of these buckets to the needy and marginalised. A lot of people are facing difficulty right now and can’t afford a proper meal. We encourage you to do your part in supporting this initiative.
    Many of the needy in the communities where CAST operates will be severely affected by limited access to food and basic necessities during this time.
  • Donations accepted in R50 units. Select + to add more. Thank you for helping us break the cycle of poverty in Africa by giving to our transparent infrastructure.
