As of December 2017, Bopa Monyetla has trained over 100 community members aged 17 – 81 to embroider and make the Tshukudu [Rhino] .
The Tshukudu Initiative allows community members to take one step closer to alleviating their poverty. It is a sad fact that many local people are unemployed; due to a lack of marketable skills and education opportunities
Each Rhino is unique and lovingly embroidered by hand by men and women, who have a dream to improve their lives and that of their families.
These men and women live in the villages surrounding the Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province of South Africa. The men and women are earning up to R900:00 per week for their Rhinos.
