Kouga Municipality and the non-profit organisation, The Butterfly Project, put needle and thread to work at a five-day workshop in support of the annual international 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign – uplifting local women. The workshop – the first of many – saw 14 less-fortunate women from across the region mastering basic sewing and entrepreneurial skills. These skills will enable them to earn an income and become independent.
