Martha and Julie started creating and designing the Heartfelt products using traditional handcraft skills, felt and beads. There are now ten women employed by this project and each day they come to work full of pride and hope. Creating each design out of love and strongly believing that they can make a difference - not only to their own lives but to the lives of the community in which they live. Each product sold helps to feed and clothe the ladies and their families. It also gives back to the community by donating a small portion to a local charity to help fight TB, HIV/AIDS and look after children and old aged men and woman within Makapanstad.
The aim is to heal the hearts of people who don't have the opportunities we have on a daily basis. And to fill not only the ladies hearts but many others with hope.
