Hout Bay Mothers

The members of this group are drawn from Imizamo Yethu, an informal and impoverished settlement in the greater Hout Bay Valley Area in Cape Town, South Africa. The 18-hectare settlement houses approximately 20,000 people with little or no infrastructure or services. A high level of umemployment and HIV disease add to the burden of the people living in this crowded settlement.

Below Summy, Zandile, Nolwando and Unathi make their first set of earrings out of paper beads.
