The MAPULA EMBROIDERIES community is a truly caring bunch of women. Together since 1991, the group in the Winterveld, South Africa, tells stories through needle and thread. The group in Pretoria makes sure that the world knows about them and assists in selling their products! This empowers all and assures there is income to educate the kids and have food on the table tomorrow too.
