“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Siyazama is a Kloof Baptist Church initiative which started in 2006. Volunteer ladies from KBC have committed to teach handwork skills to ladies from disadvantaged and impoverished backgrounds as well as local domestic workers. The skills, which are taught, include sewing, beading, embroidery, card making, patchwork, and additionally time is also set aside for Bible teaching. The name for our group, “Siyazama” means “trying together.”
Zulu Bibles and tracts are purchased from the Bible Society and provided as new ladies join. Each unemployed lady is provided with money for their transport to attend Siyazama. The Quilter’s/Cross stitch/Crafter’s Group that meet at the church monthly and in the community, and individuals, from that group have been inspired by what is happening at Siyazama and have been providing a constant flow of fabric, patterns and sewing donations and finances.
