Problem Statement

Homeless people need better skills to help themselves be self-sufficient.


Customer / Problem

Customers don't have choice in the kinds of second hand products they buy. Don't like cheap looking second hand products, or new clothes are too expensive to buy.


Solution

1st stage: encourage donations of clothes and accessories to store, sell these to make profits. 2nd stage: establish a life skills centre attached to the store that provides life and employability skills to homeless people - who will eventually work at the store.
