As of 2019, COPESSA entered into a joint venture with Women of Worth, a co-operative founded by women from the Protea Glen Community. This flagship programme is part of our efforts to roll-out income-generating strategies that prevent violence against women and children, whilst empowering women, and transforming beliefs and norms around gender-based violence and parenting.
A key goal for the Women Of Worth co-op is “to empower women so that they can be economically independent, in order to better protect their children.”
The objectives of the Crafts Project are:
- To invest in the training and development of the sewing skills for 30 women
- To improve the women’s parenting skills
- To improve knowledge and attitudes about gender based-violence
