At Markham, we care about the clothes we make, because we care about the men who wear them. We came here to make a name, not just for ourselves, but for our customers, our staff, and our communities. That’s why we’re proud to be introducing Markham M.E.N.
Markham M.E.N, or Mentorship Engagement Network, is our new corporate social responsibility (CSR) platform, from which we hope to launch a number of new initiatives that help to uplift, empower and engage South Africans from all walks of life.
We will be partnering with other non-profit organisations and collaborating with our own network to give back to the hustlers and support the dreamers for whom the Markham brand was made.
For our first instalment, we’re working in partnership with Fix Forward, a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to connecting renovators with hand-picked, quality tradesmen from low-income communities. They will go through these training workshops monthly for 7 months at The Clothing Bank, as well as guest workshops at Markham Head Office. We wish them all the best, and we’re excited to see where their next steps take them.
The first workshop for the artisans took place on 13 June 2018. We wish them all the best.
