About

INTRODUCTION

The Kloof Project (previously known as Keep Kloof Beautiful Association) is a voluntary organisation and has been in existence since 2009, and has really gained momentum over the past few years, with visible results being noticed by the community at large. The Kloof Project is dedicated to beautifying the Kloof CBD and several arterial roads leading to the heart of the Village.

Our work involves creating and maintaining islands; beautifying green spaces, creating flowerbeds, pathways/walkways, improving areas around bus stops, litter collection and liaising with the local municipality and government departments over the rejuvenation of our CBD, including the railway precinct.

We are committed to assisting the previously disadvantaged communities by providing employment and teaching them skills to them in the fields of landscaping, horticulture and the preservation of our natural environment.

One of the new initiatives is the ‘Youth for Kloof’ programme, encouraging children to take care of their environment, planting trees and shrubs, understanding the importance of a clean environment and the need to maintain a balanced ecosystems.

The Kloof project is a registered Non Profit Organisation ( NPO Number 088-851-NPO), and is also able to provide Tax Exemption Certificates ( PBO 930036919).
