Ashoka Fellow
South Africa
Fellow Since 2018
This description of Tracey Chambers's work was prepared when Tracey Chambers was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Tracey is economically empowering the most marginalised unemployed mothers and fathers in township communities of South Africa. Using excess stock from retail companies, she creates a fluent supply of merchandise which she merges with a holistic program that focuses on creating self-reliance as a fundamental component for lifelong income generation. In doing so, she enables the unemployed to emerge successfully from a life of poverty.
