Dignity Day

Eva Adams-Hart ready for her workshop.

The far south’s homeless had a chance to get a haircut, a cup of coffee and help with other basic needs last Friday. It was all in aid of Dignity Day, an event that helps to bring the homeless and the community where they stay together. The day was held at the False Bay College. The college organises the event, along with the non-profit, Revamp The Valley, and Social Work Connect, a community-based social work initiative. This is the second year the event has been held. Eva Adams-Hart, from MaterialShare, presented a workshop on how to turn plastic bottles and bags into items that can be sold.  Revamp The Valley founder, Leigh Barrett, said the homeless could possibly use money earned from recycling to shift into more regular jobs and possibly start their own businesses.
