Each of our ladies is extraordinary and valuable . Read our unique stories and join us on our journey.
Its hard to come to a new country as a single mother and to find work. I am part of the team at All Women Recycling, my son is in Congo and I send money to him through my family.
Hopefully I will bring him to Cape town soon. The team say I need to smile more like Babalwa. I am shy I think. Or just serious.
I have been at All Women Recycling the longest from our early days around the dining room table to me being the I.PET Queen.
Getting to know how to make everything and selling cosmetics from home, my life is getting better and I learn a lot.
As a single mother of two, work is hard to find for many women and I have a full time job which helps me with my own small business from home. I love making my products, I am proud of them and what we do here.
Lynn often comes in and asks me to look at a new idea and together we create new sewing projects. I have a son nearly finishing school so work is important to me I have been sewing for years.
I really like working on new things. She challenges me and makes me think differently. I was scared at first but now
I look forward to challenges. No one has ever valued us before and now we all feel valued.
