Skills, creativity for rural women

SHONGOANE — The Bopanang Bangalong women’s group in Shongoane 4 had a creative day at their monthly meeting recently.
Firstly, feedback was given about the Lephalale Coal and Power project planned for the area. This project will negatively impact local communities with regards to the availability of water, air quality, water and ground pollution. Health issues are of great concern.
Emmy Modise and her group learned how to make potholders from felt. Decorative stiches and designs were demonstrated by Mary-Ann Leask from the Skemer Women’s Agricultural Union. Some of the group members even surprised themselves with their colourful creations that can be both decorative and practical.
Then it was time for baking. The secrets of a perfect scone were shared and with a bottle of homemade peach jam, the scones turned into a delicacy fit for a queen.
