The Big Issue is a socially responsible non-profit organisation that enables willing unemployed and marginalised adults to take responsibility for their own lives through a developmental employment programme.
We’ve launched our Big Issue Back-to-School Drive, in aid of our vendors’ children. Stationery can get pricey, and we would like to collect as many school supplies as possible ahead of the 2018 school year (see page 37).
The Big Issue appeals to all public space and shopping mall owners, managers and operators in the greater Cape Metro area to allow our vendors to sell the magazines at their sites. It can be hazardous and physically exhausting to sell magazines at traffic light intersections. We would like to see more vendors selling the magazine in a safer environment.
