Godfrey’s family also work with him to support the family. His wife, Rudo, sells the animals at the local markets.  His daughter, Plaxedes, along with colleague Patience, string the beads on to the wire which is then stretched over the animal frame. Godfrey and Rudo have another daughter and son who are attending school. #africanhandicraft #giftswithacause #giftswithapurpose #handmadeproducts #uniquegifts #giftbaskets #giftideas #capetown #southafrica #africanpride #africanheritage
