Ms Alina Mosia (85) is based in QwaQwa, Free State Province. She is a member of an NGO called Ikemeleng Sewing Project, which employs 46 members both women and men.

This sewing project accesses their grant through one of the government departments. Its role has made a great impact on the community by opening job opportunities and also assisting poor communities nearby. Their challenges are theft, house breaking and food storage.
