Maun is the tourism capital of Botswana as the gateway to the Okavango Delta. It has developed rapidly in the last few decades from a rural frontier village on the Thamalakane River into a bustling town where wild buck can still be seen grazing next to local cattle, donkeys and goats. However high rates of unemployment and HIV have meant that many families in the town and surrounding settlements live in poverty, sickness and despair.
The group in Maun got off to a slow start with a small initial turnout. However, as the women have seen what they can make out of waste paper, the group has grown in size, commitment, enthusiasm and skill.
