Dragonfly Trading Company
Cobham, Surrey, KT11 3QH
The Dragonfly Trading Company supports people living in Africa whom are trying to work their way out of poverty. These groups and individuals work hard to create handmade and recycled paper, handmade cards, handmade fridge magnets, as well as variety of other unique gifts, including wall plaques, water features, key rings and CD racks.
The website is essentially an online shop where the vast majority of products are made by small community self-help groups, such as the ladies of Kwa Zulu Natal, whom work hard recycling unwanted paper and creating beautiful handmade paper and crafts, such as cards and wall plaques, in an effort to support themselves, their children, and other local children whom have been orphaned by AIDS.
There is also Wiseman Mgaga, whom has been afflicted with Polio since birth; He started out on his own in a tiny workshop, painstakingly carving and hand-painting beautiful fridge magnets. He now employs six local disabled people and wants to continue building his business so he can offer work to more disabled people in the local area, giving them an income that they perhaps would not find anywhere else.
