Proud Langalibalele co-op members Vimbephi Sithole (left) and Ncineleni Hadebe show off their wares at the Langalibalele Art and Craft Centre near Giant’s Castle yesterday.

The Craft Centre and KwaMaluleko Indigenous Nursery Project (in Kamberg) were the beneficiaries of a total of R1,26 million gathered from the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife provincial community levy funds, with the amaHlubi community receiving a craft centre and laundromat and the Thendele community’s R130 000 going towards the KwaMalueko Indigenous Nursery Project. In addition, 120 jobs have been created in the area, 60 of which are permanent.

The laundromat will service camps at the Ezemvelo resorts of Giants Castle and Kamberg and the White Mountain Resort. The Ncibidwane Clinic was also established with funds from Ezemvelo.
