A legacy of stitches

Stephina Motla loves her role of co-ordinating our Jabavu sewing group, which sews all manner of fabric goods from shopping bags, to chair bags, aprons and pencil boxes; bathroom sets, oven mitts and bed spreads.

“I was a factory worker and enjoy passing on my knowledge," says Stephina.

"Sometimes I train seven or eight people at a time. This is my legacy. If these women know how to sew, they can take money home.

"We are desperately trying to put a plate of food on the table – and we thank ACFS and their donors for helping us.”
