She believes sewing is her calling


The high level of unemployment suggests poor people would kill for a permanent job, but for a woman from Dinotjie finding a job was not an option. Grace Mmako has never been awarded a satisfactory salary from any employer so she had to find alternative income.

However nowadays Grace makes ends meet by sewing traditional clothes, formal attire and other fashion outfits. She is a self-taught tailor for over forty years now and she is committed to workshop young in daily basis.

“I have never received a good salary from any employer. Knowing that I can do a job perfectly makes me felt injustice,” she said.

Grace now has her own equipment and people do makes order for all kinds of clothes. She said her mother never encourages her to continue with her hand work at an early age but now her mother has acknowledged her fraternity.

“I discovered my skill long time ago and passion assisted me to continue. I am proud today because lot of young people have learned and acquired skill from me,” she said.

She is now encouraging young people to admire their calling. “If you can’t find job you can do something for yourself. People must learn to be business minded,” she concluded.
