A Story of Collaboration & Hope


About Msinga

Msinga is a poor rural area in the heart of Kwazulu-Natal, where residents have no running water or electricity supply to their traditional huts. Tygerberg Medical Students have carried out medical outreaches in this area since 1981, shaping future South African doctors whilst also impacting the community they serve in. In what seems a forgotten part of the country, a small group of women are supporting their children and grandchildren through a grassroots business. Supporters have facilitated a borehole being restored and erection of community buildings to serve the village. These Msinga women use these facilities to practice the art of sewing, beading, crafts and crochet work. While their origins are humble, the work these ladies produce is of the highest quality.

Denims for Msinga

Giving back with old jeans.

The jeans will be donated to a group of women at Msinga who will recycle them into conference bags. The finished bags will be available for purchase. By donating your jeans, you will be assisting a group of women to generate an income to support their families through a grassroots business. While their origins are humble, the work these ladies produce are of the highest quality. With talent, intellect and passion they have opened up opportunities that will allow them to develop and impact their own community using their own hands.

Msinga Mamas invite anyone interested to draw alongside and help build the dream of a rainbow nation.
