Pure Skills Women’s Club
Pure Skills women’s club is based in Linda Community. The focus of the group is on skills for income generation. There is also a program that runs alongside the skills training to teach good money management and entrepreneurship. The club have an Airtel money savings account and are steadily building the funds in the account which they can use for resources and in the future they hope for it to be an emergency fund for club members and eventually a regular source of income for each member.
The women to date have learned how to crochet using plastic bags and have been taught knitting, rug making, macramé and jewellery making using bottle tops to create earrings. They’ve also engaged with Zambia Breweries Manja Padmozi project which is a recycling initiative based in Lusaka and cleaned up after the annual festival “Mosi Day of Thunder” in the hope that Livingstone will become the next city for the project to expand into.
