Leeuwkop Maximum Prison skills programme has been a separate program because they are not allowed to do crochet or any skill with a potentially dangerous weapon. We currently have been teaching them hand embroidery.
Both teams have 40 to 50 students. Between the 2 groups we only have 10 sewing machines which is a challenge for us. No overlocker. We sorely need more.
Some of the items that are being made by them are shown below. All sponsorships, sales and commissions benefit this programme. Craft Academy aims to provide each successful offender completing the programme with his own sewing machine or overlocker depending on the need. Each offender receives a certificate on completion of each level and a report on his skills achievement.
All sales and donations of materials and equipment can be dropped off at 23 Judd Street, Horison Roodepoort or contact Allyson on 083 294 0356 for collections. Sponsoring 1 prisoner is possible by buying his tools and equipment for each level. A cost of R2500 per level per inmate. A basic sewing machine can also be sponsored for R2200. An Overlocker for R2500. Wool and fabric sponsorships is in desperate need. His progress will be shared with the sponsor.
