Meet Sharon, our street hawker
We are so pleased to be able to be helping little Sharon, who is a Zimbabwean 'short person' and has been begging as her 'job' for the past 8 years.

We have often seen her nestled at an Ednvale street corner and after chatting to her, found that she has a skeletal disease and can't really walk very well.

We have given her some hope and she is fast becoming the 'makarapa lady' of Edenvale.

Motorists are now greeted by Sharon, who unfortunately has to mainly sit down and cant walk easily to all the cars, with an array of colourful makarapa's.

She makes R50 per makarapa sold and is slowly selling and building up her clientele!

Hopefully we want to see her earn at least R1 500 a week (and more)!
 
We are giving her our makarapa's at cost and sometimes below cost to assist her generate some income.
