Kopanang Community

The Kopanang Community Trust is made up of a community of women with indomitable strength, nestled on the fringe of Johannesburg. Each Kopanang woman carries the burden of HIV/AIDs, whether inflicted with the virus, or caring for a loved one that lives with the disease. Forged from life’s challenges, they are fiercely compassionate and humble in their wisdom, with courage that cannot be denied.

Kopanang provides a safe platform for these women to learn new skills. Through these skills, they are empowered to create ranges of beautifully hand crafted beaded and embroidered products, which make the perfect gift, African souvenir or handcrafted home decor artwork. Each design is interpreted by the women of Kopanang and will vary in style and colour, ensuring that every piece is one of a kind.
