With the youth unemployment crisis worsening by the day, we need to create a wider range of role models to whom young people can relate and aspire.
Through the Innovation Award, Artisans of Mzansi want to find those artisanal entrepreneurs who are thinking ahead and working on specific innovations that will change or are already changing the future of artisanal trades.
Congratulations to the 2022 Artisans Of Mzansi Innovation Award winners. We are proud to have worked on this campaign with Allan Gray Makers.
