Unfortunately there is not much to report as South Africa has been in lockdown since the end of March 2020 and groups have not been able to meet in the "normal" way! However, some individuals have managed to continue with their income generating projects in an innovative way. One of the sewing groups decided to make cloth masks which have been quite successful. They have been able to sell these masks locally. Our Community Facilitators do still need to receive stipends so we would be very grateful for any donations.
We have been very fortunate because one of our donors has pledged a monthly amount to the project. We would encourage more people to do the same if possible.
I do hope that my next report will have some real news about our groups!
