Soon after the awards, there was a talk by money coach Marnita Opperman followed by several workshops on costing and pricing, marketing and sales, operational management and basic financial management, online marketing and sales and strategic planning for the longer term. The workshop sessions were open to everyone, young and old.

Wilson has also started a Backabuddy donation campaign to purchase a vehicle to assist in running the project. “I have sunk my pension into this over the last four years. I figure it’s a good investment but now we are running on thin air. It is particularly hard as my car gets used as a taxi for PMM and it has been driven into the ground. It is not running again at the moment. If I had a van or bus I could do so much more. I have huge visions for this. Basically I do less than a tenth of what I want to because I have to work and don’t have funds or transport. I desperately need a reliable vehicle to transport children and their goods to market. My plea is for help so that we can do the work we want to do,” she says.
