Kouga Municipality has boosted the fortunes of two local sewing cooperatives.

The municipality last week donated sewing material, valued at R28 000, to the two groups. The material includes fabric for traditional attire and school uniforms, sewing thread, beads and other accessories.

The women-run projects are Bayahluma from Jeffreys Bay and Uzuko Lwethu from Hankey.

The choice of items was based on specific requests by the groups.

Local Economic Development (LED) Portfolio Councillor Bryan Dhludhlu went to hand-deliver the items at the respective operational centres in the two towns.

Dhludhlu said the co-ops had already received training through the Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform and, as part of expanding their market, needed assistance with start-ups.

“It is pleasing to note that both groups are operational and we are not just throwing resources at projects to go to waste,” he said.

He added that he wanted to see notable improvement the next time he visited.

“We have to empower such initiatives for them to be sustainable projects. We would like for the people to be proud of what they achieve and we want to be part of that good change,” he said.

Thanking the municipality on behalf of Uzuko Lwethu, Thandeka Maseti said they treasured the contribution by the municipality and assured the councillor that they would return the faith with good results.

Bayahluma’s Nontsikelelo Dela echoed Maseti’s words and said they would not disappoint.
