Bontle Bahao –Your Beauty.
Bontle Bahao is the brain child of Linda Gabriel, a Zimbabwean poet and performer who understands all too well the absolute necessity for women and children to have spaces where they can work, craft, decompress, birth new projects.
Mapfihwa is a word in the Zimbabwean Shona language that refers to stones that are used to jag the pot whilst cooking using firewood, as traditionally done in many African societies. This project is named Mapfihwa because, like the stones that support pots, it seeks to provide women with psycho-social and technical skills support in their day-to-day lives.
