Esandleni Sothando

Esandleni Sothando focuses on some of the high density suburbs of Bulawayo, assisting vulnerable girls and empowering women to help overcome barriers and reach their full potential.

Some of the girls are assisted with their education tuition fees and receive mentoring, vocational and life skills training. The majority of these are at secondary school level, though a few are doing tertiary studies and vocational training.

Esandleni has provided empowerment opportunities to women by enabling income generation. A bead and jewellery making project was started. The product has featured both at local market fairs and internationally. The range of products has now been extended to include table mats as well as the necklaces, bracelets and earrings in the jewellery range.
