Locadia Dhlakama works with Kwesu, a not-for-profit organisation that teaches women sewing skills, language and other life skills. Locadia has been working at Kwesu, helping to make fabric masks for essential workers in Bellville working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 support initiatives. Please support Kwesu, which helps Locadia and other women there to earn an income for themselves. Give them a hand up, and a round of applause.

My name is Locadia Dhlakama and I am a Zimbabwean. I have worked with Kwesu organisation since the initial outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in Cape Town South Africa. I affiliated with this association in manufacturing of masks during the lockdown phase.

I have worked well with the organisation as well as learned how to operate the masks business and produced lucrative products. In associating with Kwesu, I have gained experience in teamwork and I thank them for their generosity of working with me. Making masks has benefited me in earning more income as we stopped working. This was a great opportunity which not only keeps my mind from wondering about what was going on, but also help me earn an income.

I am looking forward to working with Kwesu and hoping to make viable achievements together soon. I would like to extend my sewing skills, get more expertise and start my own business.

Thank you to the Kwesu organisation and all who were involved in the Covid-19 masks project.
