ABOUT Amanda

Born in Milnerton, Amanda has since travelled around Southern Africa living in Lesotho and Zimbabwe for varying lengths of time. Her travels opened her eyes to the diversity of the human race and the cultural disparity of mankind, making us each unique human beings.

When the unit became available to open Hangar 18, the opportunity arose to help more people than Amanda had ever dreamed of. Today, Hangar 18, a Craft and Coffee Shop in Milnerton, supports a social upliftment programme that provides outcomes based work in a safe and comfortable environment for 30 plus ladies living in Slovo.

Hangar 18 is a unique craft and coffee shop that sustains the H18 Foundation NPO in Milnerton. Their coffee shop serves an amazing diverse menu with a range of Barista made coffees, teas, milkshakes and smoothies. The craft shop is filled with hand-made crafts which are beautifully created by local artisans. The NPO provides income generating opportunities through skills transfer and outcomes based earning.

Hangar 18 also adopts eco-friendly policies wherever it can, and all packaging is paper including their straws. The Hangar also separates waste and is a drop off point for Ecobricks on the West Coast.

Hangar 18 received the LeadSA July 2017 Hero Award for community upliftment.
