What our customers are saying
2nd Story GoodsWholesale Customer

We love our wholesale partnership with Not I But We! The products are always great quality and we love knowing the true impact. We had the pleasure of visiting Not I But We in Cape Town and were blown away by the women’s stories and the instrumental role that being a part of Not I But We has in them creating a new future for themselves and their children.

MarinaRetail Customer

I was glad to learn about the survivor empowerment program and the products available to order. I placed my order quickly and easily and was excited to receive my order just in time for a special family get together before Christmas. The package was beautifully put together with information about Not I But We.

Thank you to the Not I But We team for doing such an incredible job. I cam to them with a tight turnaround time and they got straight to work. It was so lovely to workshop ideas with the group and I felt like I was in good hands. The end product was better than I could have hoped for and made with exceptional attention to detail. I can't wait to work on many more projects with this incredible organisation!
