Community Creations, falls under their economic improvement program. An intiative that “empowers South African township communities through education, economic empowerment and partnership.”
The GX team was going to visit some of these craft creation projects in the townships of Capetown. Unfortunately, a wave of xenaphobic attacks broke out in Capetown and the trip was cancelled. However, the GX team did have the oppotunity to meet with the Executive Director Helen Lieberman and hear her powerful stories of how she defied Apartheid authorities to build Ikamva Labantu.
GX will be be offering some of Ikamva Labantu products in partnership with Global Good Partners. Global Goods Partners (GGP) is dedicated to alleviating poverty and promoting social justice by strengthening women-led development initiatives for marginalized communities in Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
