DescriptionEstablished in 2000 to create and market contemporary South African wire and bead craft art, Streetwires provides skills training, support, and raw materials to over 100 formerly unemployed men and women in Cape Town and rural Clanwilliam. As market access increases, Streetwires plans to expand its presence in communities across South Africa through a number of centres operated by non-governmental organizations (NGOs). At these centres, Streetwires not only provides training, employment, and wages, but also develops community leaders to take over management of the centres and demonstrates to the broader community that it is possible to start a successful business despite challenging circumstances.
