Tivoleni sewing and baking project members in Tiyani, near Makhado in Limpopo, are now able to make many more traditional items after receiving a boost from Mama Angel at the weekend.
Sowetan's generous corporate social investment and responsibility mascot gave beads worth a whopping R5000 to the project.
Tivoleni's overjoyed spokesman Lizzie Mabedle said: "This will help us make many more traditional garments, shoes, belts, sashes, hats, skirts, bangles and necklaces.
"We will be able to sell these to augment the income we also derive from the baking project," she said.
Providing six primary schools, five high schools, and several spaza shops with more than 200 loaves of bread and close to 1000 rolls, Tivoleni is a crucial poverty-alleviation project that also makes uniforms for these schools as well as for seven social clubs in the area.
Mabedle said Tivoleni, which was formed in 1995 by widows and single women, succeeds through hard work and is inspired by the motto Ku Tiyisela Wa Humelela, Xitsongafor perseverance leads to success.
