Wake up to Penduka
Issue 4 (May 2009) If you are visiting Windhoek’s former township Katutura, don’t leave without visiting Penduka – a fabulous project which helps hundreds of woman across Namibia.

 

The women are trained to use the craft skills they already have to make marketable products, for which they are given a fair price. Priority is given to women with disabilities and women suffering from tuberculosis or infected with HIV.  In the Oshiwambo and Otjiherero languages the word Penduka means ‘wake up’.

 

The project aims to encourage women to take charge of their own lives. Penduka products are also on sale at Amber Moon on Bismarck Street in Swakopmund.
