Telephone Wire Bowls
This project was established in a subsistence farming area in Sth Africa
where unemployment is close to 80%.
Over 400 people have become skilled in various basketwork, beadwork, and sewing techniques as a direct result of this project.
Crafters vary from a regular core group, to others who produce irregularly depending on their commitments (birth of a child, hut building, cropping).
This project has also helped to build a creche for the community, as well as implementing a food scheme. Some of the older boys are using their incomes to help put themselves through school.
