The young baker, Kananelo
Tabitha and Mahlakametsa never missed an early morning in the bakery and then in early 2018 two new group members, including a 20-year-old named Kananelo Matela, joined the founders.
Kananelo lives with her grandmother in a small home in the village. She is a kind young woman who speaks softly but listens intently. For a number of years Kananelo has been the primary caregiver for her elderly grandma while she simultaneously studied at school. Then in 2017 Kananelo graduated from high school and while she had always dreamt of continuing her studies at university, limited money at home meant it was never a possibility for her to pursue her dreams.
While never forgetting her dream to study at university but also needing to earn income for herself and her grandma, one day Kananelo plucked up the courage to ask Tabitha if she could have a job.
It didn’t take Tabitha long to make up her mind and soon the bakery group was joined by a new and its youngest member.
