On the 27th of December 2011, Shangana Cultural Village receives this e-mail message from Elizabeth Daerr: " I wanted to share this photo of me with two of your artists with their crafts that I bought. They look lovely in my home! I enjoyed my visit.
Shangana is thankfull for this kind of support, which enables the village to honour its social commitment to the local community. The village with all its activities offers permanent jobs to 17 staff members, pay 30 performers (choir, dancers, drummers, marimba band) and provide income opportunities to 5 crafters in the Marula Market. This is one of the key reason why Shangana was a nominee for the 2011 Imvelo Awards.
Shangana is proud to have its roots within the local community.
