Women doing wonders to avert poverty

Some of the products from the craftswomen

Citizen Journalist

BUHERA- Women in Buhera South have taken it upon themselves to generate meaningful income through self help projects like weaving and basketry. Just at a time when most people are complaining for lack of employment opportunities, rural women in this part of Manicaland are doing wonders by producing products that can really be competitive even at the export market. Just from palm leaves, grass and raw fiber, the craftswomen are making beautiful products like baskets, flower pots, floor mats and many other assorted home decorative items.

If these skills are imparted to the young generation, many will help themselves escape the jaws of poverty especially during these times when unemployment levels are high. Women and youths will not suffer from any want as they can be capable of generating themselves surplus income to meet all their requirements and even support others.
