When presented with an unforeseen opportunity Petro van Wyk discovered her hidden entrepreneurial ability. Three years later with no tertiary education or experience she runs her own ever growing recycling business and provides a much needed service to her community in Worcester.
Worcester (near Cape Town, South Africa) is a town that became known for its reconciliation initiatives in the aftermath of the Worcester bombings of 1996. Mrs. Olga Macingoane of Khulumani has been the catalyst for reconciliation and restitution programmes in the Worcester community.
Khulumani is delighted to be part of the reconciliation efforts in Worcester and to see people like Petro van Wyk become successful despite the odds stacked against them.
