Our People

'We are a fa-mielie'

At the beginning and end of it all - are our people. Our fam.mielie often feature on the Mielie Peeps blog.

Our passion is to make a difference in the lives of our people and their communities. We are constantly aware of the needs of the communities into which Mielie has an influence, and are committed to making a difference.

Some of the things we have done to date, are to organize information and education sessions on HIV and general health, personal safety and how to deal with abuse, and other prevalent issues. We also partner with Dora Tamana, a preschool in Khayelitsha, and are constantly on the look out for other initiatives to get involved in this particular township as so many of our weavers live there. One dream is to put a fire-extinguishing device in every home in Khayelitsha, to help combat the devastating shack fires that periodically occur.
