We live in the Emmaus region near Pinetown, KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. We were introduced to the self-help concept in October 2012 and formed our group, Intwenhle – meaning “it’s a beautiful thing”. We are 20 women who love to try different things. Some of us make jam, others garden to sell vegetables and make crochet shoes. Our Community Facilitator is Margaret Nxumalo, she leads us and helps us with ideas to create an income for ourselves as individuals and as a group. We want to see our community become a beautiful thing.
