Creating opportunity through collaborative thinking

Off the Track is a non-profit holistic project in the Overstrand. We provide a platform for those who are experiencing life challenges to transform their lives through employment opportunities and choosing a healthy lifestyle. Our primary aim is to establish a Co-operative Centre where all our ongoing and future projects can be housed under one roof. Based on the principles of dignity, respect, choice and hope, our view is that collaboratively we can provide each other, and like-minded charities, with the tools necessary to facilitate change in a way not one of us could do alone.


So how are we paving the way for change?

Our weekly Bizarre market offers traders the opportunity to sell their crafts and products without having to pay any costs or commission to Off the Track. In this way their items are promoted and they are assured of a steady income.

Craft workshops are held at a minimum cost whereby crafters teach their talents to others. This in turn creates a chain of employment.

Volunteers deliver gmo farm fresh vegetables to residents, thereby spreading the word of avoiding chemically engineered food.

Health and organic Rooibos products are offered by our members encouraging the move away from allopathic towards an alternative mode of healing.

Get Involved

Project Buy a Bag

Off the Track needs funds to establish a co-operative centre for your benefit. As you are all aware, what makes us successful is that all our projects to date involve no costs. The Bizarre market allows traders to sell their products for free. Pringle Organic sells direct to the community fresh gmo vegetables every Friday with no mark up in price.     This is how you can help us raise funds - Our trader Lamees manufactures top quality 100% genuine hand-crafted leather bags and satchels at bargain prices. Some of them are displayed below under the heading 'Galleries'. Prices range from R350 to R750 - there is no mark up in price by any third party. To purchase a bag please contact Karen 082 661 5727 who will put you in touch with Lamees who will process your order. When you buy a bag give a thought to our Centre by offering to pay that little bit more which will be handed over to Off the Track as a donation. Help us to help you practise the joy that is experienced by the generosity of giving.

Fundraising + Support

Off the Track is all about involvement and there are many ways in which you can be involved.

Contact us to:

Make a financial contribution. Making a financial contribution ensures that we can establish a Centre from which we can provide the vital services of training, health awareness, and employment opportunities to those in need in the Overstrand.

Volunteer your services. Teaching a craft, facilitating a workshop, or offering transportation expands our work to reach more people in need.

Gifts in kind. Donate your items that you no longer require to our Bizarre market.

Support our traders by purchasing their crafts and health care products displayed in our project gallery.
