Sewing on the streets

Kim Williams, a paramedic, met Anna on a routine call out & posted her story online.

“Anna Khanyisile is an incredible South African who has created a thriving business with her little to no resources.”

Everyday she takes to the pavement on Vickers Road, near the M2 highway to set up her business. She spends the days sewing & mending the communities clothing.

“Jobs in South Africa are scarce, so we need to create them ourselves & if we use the skills we have, then we can make it work.”

The long queues are proof that Anna is passionate about what she does. She never misses a day & always works till the jobs are done.

“I work under the African sun sewing everyday to feed my family”

We love Anna’s entrepreneurship, her dedication & her resourcefulness.

Since the online post, Anna has received donations of gazebos, a new tables & chairs & there may even be a new sewing kit in the pipeline!
