Tshepanang ex-combatants association in Alexandra, Johannesburg, united in the vision of a sustainable business that would provide income for them and their families. Members of Tshepanang (which means ‘trust amongst each other’) are unique as their partnership comprises both ex-fighters from Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), the armed wing of the African National Congress (ANC), and the Azanian People’s Liberation Army (APLA), the armed wing of the Pan African Congress (PAC).

Students are planning another stall to sell the rest of the jewellery to their classmates and teachers soon.
