NEWSMAKING CANDLES, FLOOR POLISH... FOR SALE2012-09-05
New skills development course started!
Uneducated former farm labourers from outer Harare (mostly women) are learning how to make products for sale. So far they have had successful taster sessions in making candles and floor polish.
'You have opened my mind to the opportunities that are there, so I actually can do something with my life besides sitting and waiting for my husband's little money.'
Some were reluctant to come because they feared their illiteracy would embarrass them, but we stressed that this is a practical course and all are welcome. They are now excited about the prospects and discussing setting up cooperatives. There will be two more tasters and then in-depth training in the most popular products.
