The Tshwaranang-B Co-Op group of pensioner ladies get together to chat, offer each other support, and most importantly to make things.
They create the wonderful “Goodwill Dolls” which show the traditional dress from various tribal groups in South Africa.
Each doll comes with a tag saying who has made their lovely doll, and the tribe it represents.
The sale of these gorgeous dolls adds important income to these grandmothers, who are usually raising their grandchildren, with the numbers involved steadily growing in the township of Soweto Sth Africa.
