Tannies spreading love all over Gauteng


The Wool Project, as it has become known, entails the donation of wool by staff members and friends of Sesego Cares, which is then personally delivered to the Tannies for them to work their magic and produce high quality winter garments for distribution to the most vulnerable in our societies.

The beneficiaries, who at last year’s count were in excess of 1000, range from the disabled children to aids orphans and the elderly. This year another 400 items have already been collected and will soon warm the hearts and lives of people in need. Geographically, the project has reached every corner of the province, including Hammaskraal, Soweto, Eldorado, Greymont, Krugersdorp and Alexandra, Alberton and the greater East Rand.

On behalf of the beneficiaries of the Wool project, I would like to thank the tannies for their incredible work, passion and kindness. I am always amazed by the swiftness at which they produce these garments and it is easy to see the amount of love, creativity and thought that has gone into making each and every one of them, said Annemarie Mostert , National Coordinator of Sešego Cares, a non-profit organization facilitating the donation of the wool and the distribution of the clothing.

She concluded by acknowledging the significance of the wool donations made by staff members and friends of Sešego Cares in spreading the warmth of love to the less fortunate this winter.
