Ubuntu network of women make culturally inspired dolls

Nyalusa Vhukoni

This is a group of  fifteen Tsonga women in Bodwe village in Limpopo North. They  specialize in making contemporary fertility dolls inspired by Tsonga culture, fabrics and bead work. Besides dolls, they make beaded wall hangings, wooden spoons and clay objects, fired in the traditional open-fires outside.

Also available for music and dance performances

The women are very artistic, which is also expressed in the way they dress. They are good drum players, available for music and dance performances in their village and for tourists who visit them. This group is a social support-network of women who support each other in true Ubuntu-culture, in their daily lives.
