The Class Act Community Project, established by the Breadsticks Foundation and Class Act Educational Services, is a community development scheme based in the villages of Washbank and Xigalo. Both villages are located in the beautiful, culturally rich province of Limpopo. Each village has a community centre where literacy, computer literacy, community wellbeing and economic opportunities are priorities.
In 2015, the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLTF) allocated funds for craft centres to be built in each village. In order to ensure the sustainability of the project, community members are continuously trained in making various crafts, product development and in marketing and sales. Individual community members, and the community as a whole, benefit from the sales of these delicately crafted products.
The crafts that are made at the centres are said to be of a ‘contemporary African’ design. Some of the modern African products that are created in the craft centres include; table linen made from African geometric fabrics, adult and child aprons made from the same fabric, Shweshwe baby blankets, beautiful statement ‘African’ style necklaces, leather bags, belts and keychains made in a contemporary design using bright colours and bold shapes, wrought iron cube shaped night stands created in a minimalist style, and wrought iron and plastic chairs, which are woven and made in bright, bold colours.
