Web design and hosting service that could (in the future) employ disadvantaged people (due to corona and old SA prejudices)

by livehosting in South Africa

So, we went into an extremely hard "lockdown" here in South Africa due to the Coronavirus. That shut off any possible work opportunities that I as a 20 year experienced BI consultant  could get both here in SA and in Europe year.All opportunities shut down and no one wasemploying anyone, especially a 60+. 

So, I decided to teach myself WordPress, WooCommerece, etc. and also sign up for a web hosting service (spending my hard-earned cash).

I now have a Webhosting service that services about 10 websites (1 in the UK - glenrands.co.uk and 9 in RSA - whalewarchers.co.za and themuize.co.za, etc.).

I set up my own website (livehosting.co.za and mktplc.co.za) and now realize I need funding to promote my services. I have a base where my hosting returns 100% gross profit bit it isn't enough to make my start-up self-sustainable.

Occasionally I get installation/development work that on occasion earns an extra ZAR 10000 per month, but these tend to be sporadic.

So, to grow my business venture and get to the point where I can employ a few I need funding.

With the exchange rate the way it is, even a 1 GBP donation will give us +/- ZAR21.00.

Each and every contribution will be mentioned on a special page on our website and this can include a heading, web link, and brief summary to promote your site and, most importantly your good deed. Once we employ a few members of staff from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, you will receiveregular updates about the people you have helped.
