Income Generation

Wola Nani - Wendy and Child Picture

The craft project has been in operation for more than 15 years with a turnover of more than R1,000,000.00 and has over 40 crafters who earn a sustainable weekly income. Income earned by our crafters allows them to provide shelter, food, clothing and education for their children

Wola Nani's crafters produce recycled papier mache bowls, recycled paper jewellery, recycled magazine mirrors, designer light bulbs, beadwork, paper lampshades and tealight candles holders.

These products are sold locally with approximately 70% sold internationally, and we are proud of our contribution to foreign capital this brings into the South African economy. This not only provides the crafters with income and thus economic empowerment, but also instills a sense of worth and hope.

Through the business systems in the Income Generation unit, Wola Nani provides our crafters not only the opportunity to earn an income, but also vital technical expertise that facilitates the export of creative products made by our crafters.
