To assist those who were experiencing great economic hardship in the lock down period, was the making of Mother Theresa jackets for babies. These were distributed by various charities in the cold South African winter that exacerbated the suffering.

An offshoot of this project was to teach individuals to crochet and knit so that they could firstly supply their own families and then also sell into the community. The intention was also to work on the “pay-it-forward” concept and they could then teach others in the community a useful skill.
This was in conjunction with teaching individuals how to make small vegetable gardens that would help feed their family. This has been an ongoing project and also worked on the “pay-it-forward” principle.
