Abantu Social Upliftment is a registered Section 21 Company (2000-00-27-71-08) that was founded in 2000 by Nina Venjakob who has been involved in the craft industry since 1989 and has been uplifting South Africans ever since. Kirsten Ruhnke later joined her in 2006 and has always had a passion to help people and make a difference. Together they plan to reach many people and change their lives.

Abantu Social Upliftment trades as Out of the Box and is geared towards skills development and job creation.

Out of the Box is not a charity; it is a non-profit organisation that will sustain itself by applying business models that will be self-supporting over time.
