My Story, our story

Newsletter 27: Never Walk Alone

I recently had the pleasure of spending some extended time with my dad who is retired and lives in the Eastern Cape.  He had visited for a routine health check-up and my brother Kaya graciously hosted him. It was such a joy to watch my brother, his young son and my dad spend quality time creating precious memories together (see photo above).  It reminded me of the importance of taking time out and prioritizing people and relationships.

Happy Fathers’ Day

Appreciate dad and create beautiful memories this Fathers\’ Day 20th June with our wonderful gift ideas of handwoven picnic baskets (perfect for a family of 4 or 6) from our Legacy Picnic Basket Range.  Or our homedecor wire baskets and plates made from recycled telephone wire.  Spoil dad by filling these with delectable goodies such as biltong, chocolates, nuts and fruit for him to enjoy.  Visit our website to view the range and place your order.

SABF TP11 Cohort Graduation

Last month we celebrated our graduation as part of the TP11 cohort of the SAB Foundation Tholoana Enterprise Programme.  African Mamas was one of 76 businesses that participated in the enterprise development programme which began in 2019.  We are so grateful for the supportive community this has provided for us in the midst of a difficult season.  Visit the SAB Foundation website for more information on the programme.

So we\’ve learned that whether in life or in business, it is important to create and nurture relationships and support networks.  May you never walk alone.  Happy Fathers\’ Day!

Till next month,
