Pendo* the Pangolin is part of the hand-crafted endangered toy range of Pip, a Cape Town-based community initiative that creates opportunities for the elderly to use their wealth of sewing, crocheting, knitting, beading and candle-making skills to produce accessories which are sold to supplement their social grant income. Profits from the sale of this toy are split between Pangolin.Africa and the ladies at Pip, in a unique collaboration that brings together conservationists, entrepreneurs and the community.
*A Swahili name meaning “loved and admired.”
