The Housekeepers association of Southern Africa was founded in 1994. Our association is a non-profit organization incorporated under section 21 of the companies act. Our primary objectives are to assist in the training, educating and development of Housekeepers for all industries. We acknowledge that a critical shortage exists for professional Housekeepers in South Africa and our aim is to assist industry to identify and close the gaps.

We are supported by major hotel groups, suppliers to the industry, individually owned hotels, lodges, clubs and other smaller businesses. Our members, housekeepers and suppliers, meet on a regular basis with the objective to network and share ideas.
