Tomuco is a San Bushman from Ghanzi in Botswana, and like all in her community her life is going through many changes. From being independent hunter gatherers, the Bushmen have slowly been pushed off their land, banned from hunting and given no rights, or jobs.

They now live in small communities and often rely on poorly paid farm labour jobs or worse to srvive. The craft project at Kuru where Tomuco works is wonderful in allowing people to express their culture, heritage and individualism through arts and craft.

Tomuco is an exceptionally entrepreneurial lady keen to go on to run her own craft business and employ her friends to work with her.
