On June 28, I visited the Khulumani Support Group in East Rand (Thokoza) under
the leadership of Nomarussia Bonase. I found them gathered at their project office
engaged in making traditional beads and HIV/AIDS ribbons. The project is a source of
sustainable income for some of the members.
According to Nomarussia, “they are trying to encourage other branches of Khulumani
to stand up for their rights and not just to sit and wait for reparation while they can do
things for themselves.”
Nomarasia said the project started in 2010 and people are supportive of this initiative.
Since inception, the project has managed to increase sales of the beads and HIV/AIDS
ribbons. The members of this project are so passionate about this and come everyday
to the offices.
