The Bambanani project was started in 2010 under the NGO Caring for Shiselweni to help empower women and men with skills in crafts in order to sustain themselves. The Bambanani project hoped to train women in rural communities using recyclable and cheap materials to create a product for sale. Products such as necklaces, earrings and bracelets are made from paper and bags are made from waste material. The Bambanani website can be visited www.bambananiswaziland.org to view the crafts made.
Several requests came from different areas to train others and to pass on their skills to others. Although this did not make any business sense, after much prayer it was decided that these skills need to be shared so that it could empower more people and be a blessing to others. On 30 January a small team of 4 ladies and 2 staff members from Bambanani came to do business, marketing and product training to about 35 ladies in Siteki upon request from Mr Leo Baan. After 3 days the ladies had made beautiful bags and pencil cases. The ladies all received a starter pack bag with some sewing supplies and material to make their own bags. We are excited to see what God will do.
