Gender - City of Cape Town launches a weaving project in Du Noon

In today's show, Binky Newman - Owner of Design Afrika was Instudio to tell us more about the women weaving project in Du Noon. A new pilot project initiated by the City of Cape Town in Dunoon is weaving social upliftment as 25 underprivileged and unemployed women were taught to weave typha and river reeds into baskets and mats. Phase two of the project will teach the women how to market and sell their products. The training aims to empower women so that they can provide for their families and to train others what they have learnt. For further information send an email to binky@designafrika.co.za
