About us

G

Nordic Designers Aid is a Danish, volunteer-based and not-for-profit organisation with a mission to create less waste within the Scandinavian fashion industry.
G

We work together with Danish designers who donate their surplus stock and sample collections to us. We sell the clothes – and donate all profit to civil society programs in South Africa.
G
Surplus stock and sample collections often end up in a warehouse collecting dust on the shelves – or, in worst case scenario, is thrown on the dump.

This is a solution that is not environmentally friendly – nor does it make any sense to the designers themselves.
G
They have therefore chosen to donate the clothes to us and the good cause.

We bring the surplus clothes from Denmark to South Africa by ship. In South Africa we plan and host local fundraising events called Fashion Fundraisers, where we sell the clothes.

How do we help?

We spend all profit from the Fashion Fundraiser on civil society programs in South Africa which are implemented by our local partner. Our target group is girls and young women and the programs encourage girls to have a voice, to be problem solvers and decision makers, – and to create visionary and positive change in their own communities.
G
We take part in the actual planning and implementation of the programmes that we support. An important goal in this regard is to assure that our programmes are helping people to help themselves – in this way building better lives for themselves as well as stronger communities.
