Multi Skilled Women – Since forming our group, Phomphokwe Women�s Association, we have learnt many useful skills.Each new skill learnt enables us to climb up another rung of the ladder out of poverty thus slowly improving our life style. Our learning never stops.
- Initially we were taught JEWELLERY making both the traditional method and paper beads. For the latter using calendars, posters & magazines we craft elegant necklaces, bracelets, ear rings and key rings which are sold through the tourist outlets in Botswana. This year we added to our range of items: place mats, coasters and paper mache bowls.
- Our next skill: PERMACULTURE VEGETABLE GARDENS.Each of us boasts a thriving home garden producing a range of healthy vegetables to feed our children. Any surplus we can sell.
- This year we were taught LOOMING with wool. With the simple looms we can weave school beanies, scarves, ladies hats and smart shoulder bags. We plan to sell these items at the next Craft Market at Sherwood in December 2014.
- Now with Christmas coming, our next skill will be to mold CANDLES for parties and other festivities.
Each new skill learnt enables us to climb up another rung of the ladder out of poverty thus slowly improving our life style. Our learning never stops.

Our SKILLS are the sticks that make our ‘FIRE’ burn thus helping us to become self-reliant.
